GM grass linked to Texas cattle deaths

http://www.cbsnews.com

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.

not a gm product, bad article

brucefromwashington 1 year 41 weeks 4 days 8 hours ago

please note the correction to the article - "CORRECTION: As originally published, this story referred to Tifton 85 grass as a genetically-modified product, which is incorrect; it is actually a hybrid of Bermuda grass."

There are several plants that naturally create cyanide.

This is a poorly written article that wrongly jumped on the popular anti GM train.

I'm fearful/concerned of GM and do not use them on our farm, but one needs to know the deference between a hybrid and a genetically-modified product.

I believe that bad news reporting like this HURTS the cause to control and educate people about GM products.
