BSE cow was from Texas herd

DALLAS - A cow that tested positive last week for mad cow disease was born in Texas and spent its entire 12 years there, the Agriculture Department said Wednesday. The announcement comes five days after the agency disclosed that the animal - a beef cow used for breeding - had tested positive for the brain-wasting disease, bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE). It was the first discovery of the disease in a U.S.-bred animal.
