rancher said:Have they found the 2nd calf of the BSE cow yet?
Reader think about it if everyone actually believed it never happens that there might be two in one herd then why do we take the whole herd of origin and humanely euthanize and test them? We do it so if there is the chance of a second cow in the same herd she is found. No body has said it will never happen, only that in doesn't happen very often as the testing has proven.reader (the Second) said:There have been TWO recent cases of same herd BSE I believe, perhaps the second one hasn't been verified yet but I don't know why people always say this when it is no longer true.
PORKER said:Say Bill, can a person in the US holding a animal from Canada access the Canadian databank to check on a animal ?
Thanks BMR I missed Porkers question but you are right, in the situation Porker suggests, the data can be accessed for age verification but not previous ownership.Big Muddy rancher said:The birthdate can be accessed but not who owned the animal unless a federal vet went thru the CFIA in case of disease.
