Latest Information
Latest Information (as of January 27, 2006 - 15:15 EST)

* Investigation into the birth cohort (animals born 12 months before or after) of the affected animal (BSE Case 4) is ongoing. Earlier this week, 24 animals that still resided on the birth farm tested negative for BSE . The trace-out of an additional 67 animals from the birth cohort has now been completed. One of these 67 animals had previously tested negative for BSE under the National BSE Surveillance Program. Any birth cohorts found to be alive will be humanely euthanized and tested.
* The affected animal had two recently born offspring. A calf born in 2005 tested negative for BSE earlier this week and the trace-out of the 2004 calf is on-going.
* This investigation continues to be a priority for the CFIA and we will continue to provide updates when new information is available.
