A BSE case born in July 1998
BSE has been diagnosed in a Friesian cow, born on 06 July 1998, 23 months
after 1 August 1996, when extra control measures on animal feed containing
mammalian meat and bone meal (MMBM) were considered to have been fully
implemented. It was taken under the current compulsory testing programme,
of all animals born after 31 July 1996 slaughtered as cohorts of confirmed
BSE cases. We are currently slaughtering all "backlog" cohort animals as
part
of the preparation for the change in the OTM rule. Its farm of origin was in
Devon, where it remained until it was slaughtered on 03 May 2005. Disease
was officially confirmed on 26 May 2005.

A BSE case born in September 2001
BSE has been diagnosed in a Holstein cow, born on 28 September 2001.
The case was identified under the current compulsory testing programme for
all animals born after 31 July 1996 slaughtered as cohorts of confirmed BSE
cases. This animal was included in the cohort of the BSE case born on 3
October 2001 on the same farm and confirmed on 1 March 2005. This case
born on 28 September 2001 was born on the same farm in Dyfed and it
remained on this farm until it was submitted for slaughter on 12 May 2005.
Disease was officially confirmed on 27 May 2005. The animal was aged 43
months at slaughter.
Another case born on the same farm on 1 May 2002 has been confirmed on
27 May 2005 in the same cohort. This is the first time that the UK has
confirmed three cases born after July 1996 with the same farm of origin.
Defra will be following up detailed epidemiological analysis of this case.
This case is being drawn to the attention of SEAC and Professor William
Hill.
Professor Hill is currently carrying out an independent assessment of the
possible causes of BSE cases born after the reinforced feed ban of August
1996 (BARBs) at the request of Defra.
