What cows are forced to eat

Knowing what's in the carefully selected 'Halal' meat you've been buying for years will not only make your stomach turn- it can literally make you sick- if it doesn't kill you.

In December 2003, the first cow ever to be found in the United States with mad cow disease was discovered. Now, government officials are frantically trying to trace where meat products made from this animal went to across the country.

One major cause of mad cow disease in animals is animal cannibalism- the practice of feeding of animal remains to other animals.

Here's a short list of some of the things cattle and cows are regularly fed in the United States. If you are disgusted with what you learn, decide to do some thing about it.

Here is what a cow is forced to eat now a days. And it is all legal:

- All parts of cattle are rendered and fed to pigs and poultry, which are rendered and all parts are fed back to themselves and to cattle. This feeding loop can spread and amplify mad cow disease,

The formula that is fed to calves looks nothing like mother's milk. It's brown and is derived from cattle blood.

- According to a 1999 survey by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, about 99% of the nation's cattle raised in industrial way use hormonal implants to stimulate growth in cattle. European Union has banned these hormones. Recently the US scientists have revealed that hormones leaking into streams from cattle feedlots are altering the sexual characteristics of wild fish.

- The animal factories are treating cattle (and other animals) regularly with antibiotics which scientists believe is causing antibiotic-resistant bacteria, a key reason for substantial increase infectious diseases in the US.

- Cats and dogs killed in the sanctuaries along with road kills and other dead animals are also rendered and feed to cattle and poultry.

- Cattle brains and spinal cord are rendered directly into animal feed that continues to be fed legally to pigs and chickens in North America

- Slaughterhouse waste from cattle is rendered, or melted down, into "meat and bone meal" which is used in animal feed, to help "animals grow bigger and faster."

- Cows are forced to eat poultry excrements. Poultry litter is the mixture of excrement, spilled feed, dirt, feathers, etc. that gets scooped from the floors of poultry sheds regularly. Because poultry litter can be as much as eight times cheaper than alfalfa, the cattle industry feeds an estimated one million tons of poultry litter to cattle every year. Although excrement from other animals is fed to livestock in the U.S., chicken droppings are considered more nutritious for cows, compared to hog feces or cattle dung.

- The U.S. government continues to allow mad deer infected with chronic wasting disease to be rendered into animal feed

- Since 1996, the World Health Organization has recommended that all countries stop feeding any remains of cows to cows, yet the U.S. government still allows dairy farmers to feed calves gallons worth of cow blood and fat collected at the slaughterhouse

Take Action Now:

Don't be passive. It's your food supply which is at risk. Take action now:

  1. Sign a petition demanding ban animals feeding animals.
  2. Contact your congressman and senators demanding ban on these practices.
  3. Forward this petition to all colleagues at job, friends and family
  4. Eat only the halal meat which is not fed any other animals, raised on grain, and fed no hormone.
  5. Demand your halal store owner to supply only the healthy halal meat as described above.

i can not believe the information that i just read. my family has recently started to eat halal take away food, and i didnt really understand why eating halal meat from anywhere was so important, i thought you could say "bismilallah" and that would be ok, but now i understand.as a muslim community we should take more action and inform people and just muslim people everyone, maybe they would start eating halal meats.

Assalamualaikum,Superb article! I have been a vegetarian ever since I moved from Malaysia to the UK and now the United States, and I have not fed my only child any meat even if it says "Halal" mainly because of these reasons. I am familiar with such practices ever since the "Mc Libel Suit" in UK. But it was hard to prove such atrocious feeding methods to my family and friends who insist that the sticker "Halal" means just that. I hope this article will enlighten more Muslims and insyallah will make them more discriminate in what they feed themselves and their families. Keep up the good work!
