Alberta Dairy Cow Having Additional BSE Testing

CANADA - Last week Canada confirmed a case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy. This week BSE is again popping up on the radar screen, with another potential case in Alberta. Preliminary screening testing of a 50-month old dairy cow could not rule out BSE as part of Canada's surveillance program, according to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. Additional tests are now being run on the cow from Alberta at the National Reference Laboratory in Winnipeg.
