Ranchers say mad cow discovery has had little impact

The discovery of a cow with mad cow disease in Washington in December hasn't had much impact on local ranching operations, ranchers say, but they caution that things could change in the future. Jody Manuel, who ranches south of Havre, said that since he sells his cattle in the fall, he won't know the effect until then.
"From what I hear, calf prices are still high, cow prices are still good. It might just make people think more about where they get their beef," he said.
