Letter: BSE is rife in dairy herds so why don't we worry about milk?

Click to follow
Sir: Virtually all BSE cases have occurred in dairy herds. Dairy herds are not slaughtered for beef. This means that what we eat as beef is not affected by the disease.

On the other hand, what the Government have not addressed is the problem with milk and cheese and other associated dairy products. If dairy herds are seriously affected by BSE, what we should really be concerned about is milk and cheese derived from dairy cows.
