McDonalds Beef – Important Read

Must read..CANADIAN Beef



I’m sure those of you who aren’t in the cattle business don’t
understand the issues here. But to those of us whose living depends on
the cattle market, selling cattle, raising the best beef possible…
This is frustrating.

This will keep us from ever stopping there again, even for a drink.

The original message is from the Alberta Cattle Feeders Association

Canadian cattle producers are very passionate about this.

McDonald’s claims that there is not enough beef in Canada to support
their restaurants. Well, we know that is not so. Our opinion is they
are looking to save money at our expense. The sad thing of it is that
the people of
Canada are the ones who made McDonald’s successful in
the first place, but we are not good enough to provide beef.

We personally are no longer eating at McDonald’s, which I am sure does
not make an impact, but if we pass this around maybe there will be an
impact felt.

Please pass it on. Just to add a note:

All Canadians that sell cattle at a livestock auction barn have to
sign a paper stating that we do NOT EVER feed our cattle any part of
another animal. South Americans are not required to do this as of yet.

McDonald’s has announced that they are going to start importing much
of their beef from South America . The problem is that South
Americans aren’t under the same regulations as Canadian beef
producers, and the regulations they have are loosely controlled.

They can spray numerous pesticides on their pastures that have been
banned here at home because of residues found in the beef. They can
also use various hormones and growth regulators that we can’t. The
Canadian public needs to be aware of this problem and that they may be
putting themselves at risk from now on by eating at good old

Canadian ranchers raise the highest quality beef in the world and this
is what Canadians deserve to eat. Not beef from countries where
quality is loosely controlled. Therefore, I am proposing a boycott of
McDonald’s until they see the light.

I’m sorry but everything is not always about the bottom line, and when
it comes to jeopardizing my family’s health, that is where I draw the

I am sending this note to about thirty people. If each of you send it
to at least ten more (30 x 10 = 300) … and those 300 send it to at l
east ten more (300 x 10 = 3,000) … and so on, by the time the
message reaches the sixth generation of people, we will have reached
over THREE MILLION consumers!

I’ll bet you didn’t think you and I had that much potential, did you?
Acting together we can make a difference. If this makes sense to you,
please pass this message on.
