Mad Cow

Americans claim that the infected cow in Washington state is from Canada. They say the DNA test shows the cow was born in Alberta. It's also believed that the cow is infected by the feed which has parts of cattle, sheep or other animals!!
What will happen to cattle industry of Canada is not clear yet but seems it won't be good. The industry lost almost $2 billion just because of a single mad cow case, last summer. Japan stopped buying beef from Cargill Foods, one of the biggest plants in Alberta since then. They probably never turn their face to Canadian beef.
