Scientists are trying to clone cows that are resistant to mad cow disease

Aided by a $300,000 federal grant, researchers at the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech are attempting to clone cattle that are incapable of developing mad cow disease. Presumably, these cloned cows could then be fed contaminated feed without coming down with the disease.

We at eatwild.com would rather see those tax dollars spent on researching grass-based production. Pasture-raised cows are naturally free of mad cow disease. What's more, this natural mode of production is better for the environment, the animals, small scale farmers and consumer health. Don't clone them. Graze them.
