GM Grass Linked to Texas Cattle Deaths

Pat: Imagine that. A cabal-owned major media company has used the words “GM” (genetically modified), “linked” and “cattle deaths” in the same headline.

Be still my beating heart.

There is apparently a public relations war raging behind the scenes. Monsanto and its minions are said to have invested millions in public relations over this story. Notice that the name Monsanto — or any GMO company — is not included in the article. Plus, various “camps” involved —  cattle industry, seed companies, agronomists and universities, testing labs, veterinarians, etc. — are  debating these “alleged” gmo-linked deaths every which way to Sunday. For example, is Tifton 85 grass genetically modified or is it a hybrid or is it an ultra hybrid (hybrid of a hybrid)?

From reading background on this issue, it appears this story is being managed and massaged by several factions. I wonder if we’ll ever really know the true story. But maybe we settle for a small — but significant victory — that the words “GM” (as in genetically modified) and “linked” and “cattle deaths” appear in the SAME headline of a cabal-owned major media news outlet. I mean, that’s a first or close to one.

The rabbit hole goes very, very deep with GMOs, the USDA, gmo feed grass, gmo vegetable seeds, Roundup and other herbicides, and Monsanto. Satan/Monsanto may be finding out that “It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature.” I believe Mother Earth will hardly tolerate these companies of GMO death infecting and poisoning her people and planet anymore. So, this just may be an opening salvo . . .

And with the return of the Goddess/Divine Feminine, I’m putting my money on the Goddess.

ELGIN, Texas – A mysterious mass death of a herd of cattle has prompted a federal investigation in Central Texas.

Preliminary test results are blaming the deaths on the grass the cows were eating when they got sick, reports CBS Station KEYE.

The cows dropped dead several weeks ago on an 80-acre ranch owned by Jerry Abel in Elgin, just east of Austin.

Abel says he’s been using the fields for cattle grazing and hay for 15 years. “A lot of leaf, it’s good grass, tested high for protein – it should have been perfect,” he told KEYE correspondent Lisa Leigh Kelly.

The grass is a genetically-modified form of Bermuda known as Tifton 85 which has been growing here for 15 years, feeding Abel’s 18 head of Corriente cattle. Corriente are used for team roping because of their small size and horns.

“When we opened that gate to that fresh grass, they were all very anxious to get to that,” said Abel.

Three weeks ago, the cattle had just been turned out to enjoy the fresh grass, when something went terribly wrong.

“When our trainer first heard the bellowing, he thought our pregnant heifer may be having a calf or something,” said Abel. “But when he got down here, virtually all of the steers and heifers were on the ground. Some were already dead, and the others were already in convulsions.”

Within hours, 15 of the 18 cattle were dead.

“That was very traumatic to see, because there was nothing you could do, obviously, they were dying,” said Abel.

Preliminary tests revealed the Tifton 85 grass, which has been here for years, had suddenly started producing cyanide gas, poisoning the cattle.

“Coming off the drought that we had the last two years … we’re concerned it was a combination of events that led us to this,” Dr. Gary Warner, an Elgin veterinarian and cattle specialist who conducted the 15 necropsies, told Kelly.

What is more worrisome: Other farmers have tested their Tifton 85 grass, and several in Bastrop County have found their fields are also toxic with cyanide. However, no other cattle have died.

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Agriculture are dissecting the grass to determine if there might have been some strange, unexpected mutation.

Until it can be determined why this grass suddenly began producing cyanide, Abel is keep his livestock far away.

“The grasshoppers are enjoying it now,” he said.
