Three calves test positive for BSE

WALES - Three young calves on a Welsh farm have tested positive for BSE in what is believed to be the first cluster of infections discovered for almost a decade. The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs confirmed that experts were trying to establish whether the cows, from an unidentified farm in the Dyfed area, had become infected by the same route, possibly through feed imported from abroad. The cows are aged between 36 and 43 months. The first case was identified more than two months ago and the two others were confirmed at the end of last week.
