"Canada Mad Cow Probe Traces Two More Animals to US
Mon Jan 17, 2005 04:26 PM ET

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (Reuters) - Inspectors have traced two more cows from an Alberta dairy herd to the United States in their investigation into the country's second home-grown case of mad cow disease, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency said on Monday.

The CFIA confirmed an eight-year-old dairy cow had bovine spongiform encephalopathy on Jan. 2. The agency has since been trying to find and test other cows born on the same farm around the same time.

The cows may have consumed contaminated feed believed to have caused the disease. Officials have said they want to kill and test related cattle, although they said the disease does not usually occur in clusters.

The CFIA identified 38 cows from the farm that may be of interest. It has now traced a total of six to the United States."
