Summer BSE developments

fast and furious Summer started out with a bang for the Texas cattle industry when USDA confirmed that a 12-year-old Brahman-cross cow testing positive for bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) came from a herd in the Lone Star State. The cow, originally tested and sampled in November 2004, was blocked and removed from the human food supply last year at the time of testing. While the tests in November indicated the animal did not have BSE, retesting in England in June confirmed the animal had the disease.
