Another mad cow discovered in Canada.
A seventh case of Canadian mad cow disease was found in Edmonton, Canada, in July 2006.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency conducted tests confirming that the four-year-old dairy cow had bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE). This is the youngest cow so far to be infected with the disease. It was born after the 1997 ban on using cattle parts such as brains and organs as feed for other cattle.
A senior veterinarian with the agency claims that the detection of the diseased cow marks a success in the BSE surveillance program.
The case was not expected to Interfere with Canadian-American cattle trade, which had just resumed after the United States lifted a ban on Canadian beef at the beginning of the year. The ban began after the first case of BSE appeared in 2003.
