450 head seized in cattle crisis

CANADA - In one of the largest seizures in recent years, nearly 450 head of neglected cattle have been removed from a northern Alberta farm by animal welfare officials, as fallout from the mad cow crisis continues. "The drought of the last two years and the market conditions as a result of BSE have put pressure on all of the industry," Airey said. "The lower-end operations are showing the signs of that pressure."
