Kansas beef firm setting up BSE lab

US - U.S. beef producers have been losing millions of dollars a day after Japan and other countries imposed a ban on U.S. beef imports in December, when a cow in Washington State was found to be suffering from bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or BSE.
Now, a seemingly innocuous beef-processing plant off a remote Kansas turnpike is doing something about it. Last week, Creekstone Farms Premium Beef LLC of Arkansas City decided to test all their beef in an effort to persuade Japan to reopen its market to U.S. beef.
