BSE Update — January 21, 2004

USDA personnel have located another animal that is part of a group of 17 heifers originally dispersed from the Canadian source herd in August 2001. The animal was found at a Boardman, Oregon, facility. It is not unusual for an epidemilogical investigation to cover multiple States. These 17 animals were mentioned by Dr. Brian Evans, Chief Veterinary Officer for Canada, in the January 6, 2004, technical briefing and are not part of the original 81 animals. APHIS investigators have now located four from this group of 17.
