Alberta farm identified as home of 'mad cow'

ALBERTA - A farm near Barrhead, Alberta, northwest of Edmonton, has been identified as the home of Canada's most recently identified mad cow. In an interview with the Edmonton Sun, farmer Allan Degner said he hopes that, by voluntarily identifying his sick cow, he has helped the fight against bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or BSE. "I just hope that by doing what I did it's going to help the whole system," Degner told the Sun. "I hope they can find out more about it."
