A case of BSE, or mad cow disease, has been confirmed in a beef cow from Alberta. It's the first case to be reported in Canada since 2011. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says the case was detected through a national surveillance program. Doug Gillespie, president of the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association, says that means Canada's surveillance system is doing what it should. (The CFIA confirms that no part of the animal's carcass entered the human food or animal feed systems. It says it is still trying to determine the history of the animal and how it became infected.)
