A new federal ruling aimed at curbing the potential spread of Mad Cow disease could spike a huge increase in the cost of disposing of dead livestock for local farmers.
The new FDA regulation, scheduled to take effect in April, will prohibit the rendering of dead cattle over the age of 30 months unless the brain and spinal cords have been removed, an added expense that could threaten the profits and survival of the company that currently handles dead animal removal for Spencer and 21 other Kentucky counties.
