Possible BSE Case Send Fears Through Cattle Industry

Cheyenne, WY – A livestock marketing spokesman says the meat industry is in limbo while testing is done on the possible second mad cow disease case in the US. After the first mad cow case 11 months ago, Japan and more than three dozen other countries placed restrictions on US beef, hurting export sales and the farm economy. State agriculture officials say the animal in question did not come from Wyoming. Officials in five other states have said the same thing.
