Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Happily, the journal also provided a remedy based on a simple experiment. When cows were switched from a grain diet to hay for only five days, O157 declined 1,000-fold.

Unhappily, industrial agriculture is not organized to feed cattle with principally grass and hay, but silage and grain-based concentrates. Plans for the future? More maize (corn) and soy. So expect more pollution from unbalanced cow intestines.

We know what healthy farming is, but the money-spinners don't want to do it.

Are oats (avoine) any good for cattle?

Not generally fed to cattle or sheep. But they are to horse and donkeys, in limited amounts.

Very limited amounts ... you should see the days when they're fed too many oats for the amount of work they're doing ... whooooo.
