I have a problem with my calves. They keep finding ways to sneak dog food from my Pyrs. Not a lot and it is not causing bloat etc but I am worried about mad cow disease because that comes from eating other cattle in feed. God knows what is really in dog food. Beef is on the list of ingredients but somehow I suspect it is not UDA prime if you get my drift. Do you think it is safe to eat these calves or should I reserve them for dog food? Hate to waste them they are filling out nicely.

Eat them. The odds on them getting BSE are miniscule. You're far, FAR more likely to choke to death on a piece of steak.

Not surprising they like it as it has lots of stuff they want. Assuming you are buying dog food made in the US not Mexico or China you have a very miniscule chance of having BSE issues. You are more likely to get hoof issues from the extra protein if they eat too much.

I wouldn't worry about it as long as you are using quality dog food.
Avoid Ole Roy, or dog food having the protein source from China.

If the Mad-Cow prion were in the dog food then your dogs would get it first.

That makes sense I was assuming it was just humans and cows without considering it would also affect canids. Amazing the things I come up with to worry about
