Brazil: 2021 – 2 Confirmed Cases of BSE.

WAV Comment – I am old enough to remember the terrible situation of BSE in the 1980’s; which was largely due to cows being fed the ground up remains of other cows – or giving meat to animals that should feed on grass. Watch the video for detail; which shines a bright light on the modern day farming practices.

The video explains it better:

Brazil has confirmed two cases of BSE, or mad cow disease, and has suspended beef exports to China. Ireland, a smaller beef supplier to China, reported a case of mad cow disease in May last year, but has not yet been able to resume exports.

However, the Brazilian ban is not expected to last for long, with Brazil accounting for 40% of China’s beef imports.

A number of meat processors in Brazil have been found to have bought cattle from ranches that exploit ‘slave labour’, according to international media reports.
