Transporting carcasses can spread the disease
THERE seem to be major problems dealing with the slaughtered animals.
Instead of burning them all on the farm ,some are now being hauled miles to be rendered. Surely this is all unecessary; why not just bury them on the farm?
A hole, plus quicklime. No smoke, no transport, no need for sleepers & coal.
Dead animals and humans have been buried since time
began, whether they had a virus or not. I suppose that, in this so-called high-technology age, the simple answer is lost.
