Texas Animal Health Commission News Release January 19, 2005

snip...


“Texas and the U.S., on the other hand, are on schedule to meet the
objective for testing cattle for bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or
BSE,” commented Dr. Hillman. “Since June 2004, more than 180,000 cattle
in the U.S. have been tested, with more than 17,000 tested in Texas. All
test results have been negative. Nationally, the objective is to test as
many as 268,500 cattle by December 2005, with as many as 23,000 of those
in Texas. Statistically, this intensive testing will allow us to
determine if BSE exists in the U.S., and if it does, at what level.
After December 2005, the testing will continue, but at a lower level.”

Dr. Hillman explained that cattle targeted for BSE testing include those
that fail the pre-slaughter inspection at the processing plant; cattle
that can not rise or walk normally; animals that exhibit signs of a
central nervous system disorder, such as stumbling; or cattle that are
emaciated or injured. Cattle of any age that die of unknown causes also
are being tested. “If producers have cattle on their farm or ranch that
meet these criteria, they should call the USDA’s toll-free at
1-866–536–7593. Arrangements will be made to properly sample and dispose
of the animal, without cost to the producer,” he noted...snip...END

GREETINGS,

> U.S. have been tested, with more than 17,000 tested in Texas. All test
> results have been negative.

OR on the other hand, do as some do in TEXAS and just don't rapid
test the damn thing, just say OOOPS, we forgot, and send the cow
to be rendered. NO trace of the stumbling and staggering cow.
Counting that one and the other positive, positive, inconclusive,
and finally declared and documented as negative cows (NO WB),
the USA in my opinion would have 5 documented mad cows counting
old daves cow that started the whole mess by him screwing up and
capping the cow where he did. OOOPS again. ive been real moooody
lately with all this BSeee, sorry... need a break... TSS

TEXAS MAD COWs ARE ONLY TIP OF ICE BURG ;

No mad cow results for nearly 500 cows

WASHINGTON, Aug. 11 (UPI) -- The U.S. Department of Agriculture failed
to test for mad cow disease or collect the correct portion of the brain
on nearly 500 suspect cows over the past two years -- including some in
categories considered most likely to be infected -- according to agency
records obtained by United Press International.

The testing problems mean it may never be known with certainty whether
these animals were infected with the deadly disease. Department
officials said these animals were not included in the agency's final
tally of mad cow tests, but the records, obtained by UPI under the
Freedom of Information Act, indicate at least some of them were counted...

THERE only fooling themselves.

THE June 2004 ENHANCED BSE SURVEILLANCE should be called
THE June 2004 ENHANCED BSE COVER-UP PROGRAM.

THEY could test one BILLION cows in 18 months and not find BSe at this rate.

NICE to see at least CANADA still confirming there histo with WB.

WE know why USA refuses WB now;

JAPAN BSE # 8 & 9 cow

8. 6/10/2003 Holstein Steer 13/10/2001 ***23 mths***
No clinical signs WB+, IHC-, HP-


9. 4/11/2003 Holstein Steer 13/1/2002
***21 mths*** No clinical signs WB+, IHC-, HP-

===========

More information on the first 11 Japanese BSE-cases can be found on the
website of the Japanese Embassy in the US:
