Yes, it is interesting timing. What burns my butt is that the USDA used "False Positives" plus "Consumer Scare" as a reason in denying Creekstone testing and then go right ahead and announce the inconclusives.
We all know that an "inconclusive" is not really an "inconclusive". It's a positive on the ELISA that hasn't been verified by the Western Blot.
Johanns was sickening in the news conference at the Dept. of Ag the other day. It was all show for the Japs.
Another case of BSE is not good for producers in Canada or the US. But I guess with the intense testing program we are bound to find another one. :roll: Wonder how R-calf will use this to their favor ?
