Quarantines ended for five herds in BSE investigation

The Department of Agriculture ended the quarantine of five cattle herds -- four in Washington state and one in Oregon -- that were being investigated as part of the probe into America's first case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy, chief USDA veterinary officer Ron DeHaven said.
The herds are located in Mabton, Mattawa, Sunnyside and Connole, Wash., and Boardman, Ore., DeHaven said in a news conference. The quarantines were lifted because the disease is not contagious and authorities culled animals from the herd that could be linked to the animal found with BSE, he said.
