U.S. Department of Agriculture officials announced today another case of Mad Cow disease might have turned up in the U.S., but they won’t give any details about where the cow is located. Another case turned up 11 months ago. Officials with the Missouri Cattlemen’s Association have been quick to start damage control. The group’s Executive Vice President, Brent Bryant, says the fact that the case is being so closely scrutinized shows the government’s and cattle owners’ diligence on the issue. Bryant says all the talk about mad cow disease could hurt markets, but he feels confident producers will be able to weather the storm. State Agriculture Department officials refused to comment on the issue, referring calls to the USDA.
