NI cattle not tested for BSE

NORTHERN IRELAND - Northern Ireland's Department of Agriculture is being blamed for failing to test nine cattle which should have been screened for the brain disease BSE. The animals were considered a risk as they had sustained injuries - suggesting their balance may have been affected. A report ordered by the Food Standards Agency said the testing failures were due to errors by department vets supervising at meat plants.
