BSE Mad Cow Now
Found in Sweden

Cattle Network

Sweden reported a suspected case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, mad cow disease) after tests showed signs of the illness in a domestic cow, authorities said on Tuesday.
The tests on a 12 year old cow in central Sweden had been sent to a laboratory in the United Kingdom for confirmation, the Vastmanland county government said in a statement.
Sweden is one of few European countries that have never had a confirmed case of BSE. Between 2001 and 2003, preliminary tests showed signs of the illness in 10 Swedish cows, but all the final tests were negative. Lab results from the UK were expected within 14 days, the county government said.
