Risk management of Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathy in North America

snip...

Table VIII
Surveillance of bovine spongiform encephalopathy in North America
between 1997 and 2001: number of cattle >_ 24 months tested

Year Canada USA Mexico

1997 712 2,713 140
1998 926 1,080 407
1999 895 1,302 289
2000 1,020 2,681 194
2001 1,575 5,272 358

During that interval, awareness had grown within the ranks of
mink producers in regard to the apparent disease transmission
risk associated with feeding animals the carcasses of sheep, pigs
and their own species...

PLEASE note the huge number of cattle tested for TSE in Mexico ;-(not)
i did not think anyone could get as low as the USA and Canada,
but Mexico did, they tested even less. Mexico has absolutely no
idea.

PLUS, seems whomever is responsible for this report did not
seek out all the facts. ONE of the things i dispute in this report is
as follows;

REALITY IS;

Since previous incidences of TME were associated with common or shared
feeding
practices, we obtained a careful history of feed ingredients used over
the past 12-18
months. The rancher was a "dead stock" feeder using mostly (>95%) downer
or dead dairy
cattle and a few horses. Sheep had never been fed.
