Rancher Loses Livestock Due To GMO Corn-Audio

(Photo/AP)

The Food Nation Radio Network conducted an exclusive interview this week with Jerry Rosman, an Iowa pig and cattle rancher who lost his entire operation due to GMO corn that he says made his livestock sterile. Today, he drives a truck to make ends meet, but he agreed to tell us his story.

 

 

 

Here’s what happened:

    California CARB fuel was close to zero ethanol in our fuel in 1992..

    1992 fuel price about $1.40 per gallon.

    Ethanol push from fed EPA and friends pushed ethanol to 5.6% and we paid more for our fuel.

    Fed EPA and Big oil refiners pushed the oxygenate to 10% and we paid more.

    Now BP GMO fuel is pushing for over $1.00 in corporate welfare with 15% of the fuel market while cutting back Oil and refining

    Will BP GMO fuel patents generate credit trade income from the Big oil industry with the Queen Mother help.

    The Queen banker friends may want a share.

    So. how big does California ethanol bill need to be to qualify for the EPA waiver?

    Thank you for getting the word out about the horrors of GMOs.
    I am so sorry for Jerry Rosman’ losses. Does he have any legal recourse? I do hope so!

    There is absolutely no reason to ever grow gene engineered food. The CEO of Monsanto only eats organic food because he doesn’t believe GMO’s are safe to eat.

    Well of course the Guvment and Monsanto didn’t do anything to help- they’re in each other’s pockets! I mean the former VP of Monsanto is the Food Tzar!!!

  • Mercedesme411

    Well now if the cattle get sterile IT WILL MAJE PEOPLE STERILE TOO!!!!!!!!

    • Roland Decaro

      Then feed it to the Monsanto Executives. People with their values should not propagate

    So the other billion other cattle eating GMO crops are ok but this guy has problems.

    • Doc K

      Go hug a tree, We are seeing increased incidence of fertility problems related to this issue. When GMO corn was initially tested, they saw this in rats, but it was overlooked to get it approved through USDA and FDA. Just keep your mind open to the possibility that this might be occurring. Of course if your benefitting by this in anyway, that might be difficult.

    • Sheryl Metalmom Johnson91

      He is not the only farmer to have problems with GMO feed. Cattle, pig and chicken farmers are all seeing lowered fertility, increases in miscarriage rates, and stillbirths.

      Go hug a tree is justa troll.

    Namaste Everyone, Once an alien gene is inserted into an organism the genome responds seeking to destroy the invader. The genes are now out of equilibrium and try to, 1. fullfiling their previous designed tasks, 2.fighting the intruder, 3.trying to unite with an incompatible occupancy gene. In this altered state food is produced thats altered resulting in a host of critical health problems. Genitics is the last frontier in biology. I know of no organism absent of a defence mechanism let alone trying to form a union in a forced occupation. Food products that fail to meet the related biochemical needs of an receiving organism will form mutations the precursers of disease. In conclusion biochemical and geometric changes in GMO food appear to interfere with absorbtion, access, usage and communication damaging cells. Atomic Imaging is needed. Thank You Namaste Timothy.

      exactly. The body will treat anything un natural as a foreign invader.

    • RavenBoy

      Timothy-murphy–
      If I’m following your logic, there could be no evolution, as a mutated gene would be “seen” as an invader and the “…genome responds seeking to destroy the invader…”. Am I misinterpreting you? By the way, I’m no fan of GMOs for a host of reasons, but critics need to be sure their views are supported by sound background, or the goals will be undercut.

    feed it to Octomom!!

    the animals were having false pregnancy due to a mimic of estrogen,by the genetics in the corn, which they were eating, which by the way will cause breast cancer in women – anytime you have a chemical that mimics estrogen, you raise the estrogen in the body, and raised estrogen or longer years of producing estrogen, raises the potential of breast cancer in women, and obviously women can mimic false pregnancies also…

      Right on! Well said….

    But wait! Monsanto has a new chemical that can make your cattle fertile. It will cost you though! These guys all need to be prosecuted for crimes against humanity. treason against the american people, racketeering, bribery, subversion of the american govt. and probably dozens of other crimes.

    • mechstech

      Monsanto is a big part of the American Gov’t.

  • concerned citizen

    I am not an attorney or scientist, but I work with many of these people in the GMO Free Movement.
    I have seen this play out time and time again with certain farm profiles.
    I think you maybe targeted and perhaps sent “special feed” that could be just to put a certain farm profile out of business. They are profiling farmers in the grain industry…approx. 150 or more farms have been targeted and sued by Monsanto…many losing their farms and savings.
    I think you maybe a victim of farm profiling and targeted…not sure what you call it when you do this kind of sabotage, biotech sabotage on profiled farms?
    I think it is worth looking into. This would be in line with many of the business practices of the Biotech world especially Monsanto.

  • Lexionag

    This is B.S. at least 95% of all livestock operations in North America are feeding GM corn and grains. These operations get high conception rates that are no different than feeding non gmo. IMO he needed to blame something for his poor management and failure. My 2 cents
