UK: new BSE case : LUSENET : Grassroots Information Coordination Center (GICC) : One Thread


A case of BSE has been discovered in a cow born after the introduction of tight control measures aimed at stamping out the disease.

The infected animal, understood to be a Friesian dairy cow from Somerset, was born on 27 May 1997 - nearly 10 months after controls on animal feed containing mammalian meat and bone meal were implemented.

The government was quick to deny the development increased the fears of a spread of BSE.
