Gov't confirms dead cow in Hokkaido as 21st case of BSE


Sunday, December 11, 2005 at 06:40 JST
SAPPORO — Japan's agriculture ministry said Saturday a cow that died on a farm in Chitose, Hokkaido Prefecture, earlier this week had bovine spongiform encephalopathy, the 21st mad cow disease case reported in Japan.

The body of the cow was incinerated and meat from the carcass will not enter the market, the Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Ministry said. The Holstein cow, 5 years and 9 months old, was born before the government banned the use of meat-and-bone-meal feed.
