US cattle group attacks Canada BSE testing rate

US - The number of Canadian cattle being tested for BSE per month has substantially decreased, claims a US cattle group demanding restrictions on beef imports from Canada, writes Anthony Fletcher. “Reports by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) show that Canada tested 7,088 cattle for BSE during December 2004, while the average number tested per month for January, February and March totaled only 5,258 cattle per month – a 28 per cent drop,†said Leo McDonnell, R-CALF USA president and co-founder.
