One Year Anniversary of Mad Cow

CANADA - One year ago this week the Canadian Food Inspection Agency announced an Alberta cow had tested positive for mad cow disease. Hours after the announcement, borders around the world slammed shut to Canadian cattle. Cattle prices were beginning to show a slight improvement when the industry was rocked by news in December that a second cow in Washington State with B-S-E was confirmed as Alberta-born. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says the cause in both cases is likely contaminated feed.
