Latest BSE case raises questions

DENVER - Cattle prices and demand for beef remain strong, but the latest case of mad cow disease in Canada has raised questions about fallout for the U.S industry as the nation's premier livestock show began.
Some ranchers at the National Western Stock Show said the new case shows the Agriculture Department shouldn't lift its ban on the import of most beef parts and cattle from Canada as scheduled in March. And even those who think Canadian beef is safe worry that Japan's continuing ban on American beef will undermine the industry's recent gains.
