Ask Chelsea Green: What can I do to fight the USDA’s ban on “mad cow” testing?

From time to time here at Chelsea Green, we get questions in our mailboxes from readers of our books or our blog. Sometimes, I admit, we don’t know the answers. So, instead of returning a polite “Uh…I dunno,” or commiserating with Google for a few hours, I figure we would be better off asking the Chelsea Green community for help. This is the first question in the Ask Chelsea Green series. It comes from Maureen. Thanks for the question, Maureen!
I recently read Linda Faillace’s article about the ruling against Creekstone Farms in favor of the USDA.  The idea that a farm would be unable to test its beef at its own cost is totally absurd and outrageous.  I’m writing to see if there is anything I could do as a consumer?  Any place to write or call to express our outrage? Thanks for the great articles, Maureen
Is anyone out there writing to the USDA? Any particular products we should be protesting? What are you doing to protest the USDA’s unbelievable decisions? Let us know by posting your strategies below.
