Hello Mr. Thomas,

> What Mr. Singeltary failed to do was provide
> the List with Dr. Detwiler's entire statement.

would you and the USDA/APHIS be so kind as to supply
this list with a full text version of the conference
call and or post on your web-site?
if so when, and thank you.
if not, why not?

> The system has been in place for over 10 years.

that seems to be a very long time for a system to be in
place, and only test 10,700 cattle from some 1.5 BILLION head (including
calf crop). Especially since French
are testing some 20,000 weekly and the E.U. as a whole,
are testing many many more than the U.S., with less
cattle, same risk of BSE/TSEs.

Why does the U.S. insist on not doing massive testing
with the tests which the E.U. are using?
Why is this, please explain?

Please tell me why my question was not answered?

> U.S. cattle, what kind of guarantee can you
> give for serum or tissue donor herds?

It was a very simple question, a very important
question, one that pertained to the topic of
BSE/feed, and asked in a very diplomatic way.
why was it not answered?

If all these years, we have been hearing that
pharmaceutical grade bovines were raised for
pharmaceuticals vaccines etc. But yet the
USA cannot comply with feed regulations of
the ruminant feed ban, PLUS cannot even
comply with the proper labelling of the feed,
cross contamination etc.
Then how in the world can you Guarantee the feed
fed to pharmaceutical grade bovine, were actually
non ruminant feed?

Before i was ask to be 'disconnected',
i did hear someone in the background
say 'we can't'-- have him ask the question again.

could you please be so kind, as to answer these
questions?

thank you,
Terry S. Singeltary Sr. Bacliff, Texas USA

P.S. if you will also notice, i did not post that
emergency phone number and do not intend on passing
it on to anyone. I was joking when i said i should
call and report the whole damn U.S. Herd. So please
pass that on to Dr. Detwiler, so she can rest easily.

BUT, they should be reported, some are infected with TSE.
The U.S. is just acting as stupid as Germany and other
Countries that insist they are free of BSE.
