What are every1s thoughts on how this cow became infected? I just read an article that said the cow was NOT infected by contaminated feed.

I think like the I-80 post, we wait for the test results, instead of speculating and assuming.
Now if China puts a ban on US beef we will know it is political and not about the meat....

I think the grand father of the owner visited Banff on a Senior's bus trip in 1960. That should be a close enough connection to Canada !

I sold embryos to an old vet in Alabama shortly after the first BSE case in Canada. He said to me " What's with your Canadian vets being so G.D. honest. We often see those cows that stagger around, down here, but we always call it Rabies"  I have often wondered if he was serious or basically telling me what he knew.

I heard one goofy report on tv that it wasn't caused by anything thing she ate but it was a mutation. That didn't make sense to me. I know you can't feed bloodmeal and etc any more I know. There was one oddball case a couple years back where some guy was mixing dog food in a least cost feed formula for cattle. This got him fined cause you can use animal by products in pet food.....but not in rations for animals for consumption.
People can't believe we have such a big moon for such a small town.

I think this may be a case of the original cause of BSE vs massive spread of BSE (feeding contaminated feed)...  theory goes that there will be some random mutations in any national herd, so a few minor isolated cases are to be expected from time to time.  There are some very interesting and wide ranging theories on why BSE developed in the first place (ie the first cow that was fed to all the other cows)...  nothing definitive though.

I did notice that fed cattle futures have regained their high since this cow was reported... so a collective meh from the market.
