Canada's food safety organization says the cow discovered on an Alberta farm with mad cow disease was born two years after Ottawa imposed a tougher ban on animal feed to guard against the disease. Paul Mayers of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency says the cow was born near Edmonton in March 2009. (Mayers says the case has been reported to the World Organization for Animal Health and won't affect Canada's official beef trade status. He says Canada expects its trading partners not to restrict market access to Canadian beef.)
