Tests on cattle from Alberta farm where new BSE case found negative: CFIA

ALBERTA - Tests on 25 cattle from an Alberta farm where the latest case of mad cow disease was found are negative, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency says. The test group included 24 cattle born on the farm 12 months before or after the infected animal and a recently born calf. The CFIA said it is continuing to trace the whereabouts of other animals of interest. On Monday, the CFIA said bovine spongiform encephalopathy was found in a cow in north-central Alberta that was born after a ban was imposed in 1997 on giving cattle feed made from other animals.
