Social media has been sharing information that mRNA vaccines are getting used in raising the U.S. cattle herd.
A National Cattlemen’s Beef Association statement says there are no current mRNA vaccines licensed for use in beef cattle in the United States.
“Cattle farmers and ranchers do vaccinate cattle to treat and prevent many diseases,” the statement said, “but presently, none of these vaccines include mRNA technology.”
Texas agriculture commissioner Sid Miller said his department has been working towards a fact and science-based assessment of the risks associated with this technology.
“Our analysis will include the clinical research and the public policy, economic, and production impact of the different policy prescriptions we may adopt,” Miller said. “It’s a serious issue we are looking into here at TDA.”
A Jan. 12 article on the website Truth Press said if Americans consumed meat from a vaccinated animal, the mRNA vaccines then entered their bodies.
