Our local news just said that they are going to slaughter about 450 calves because one of them is the infected cows calf. I didn't think this could be passed from cow to calf....Am I wrong??? Or is all this killing of calves just to ease some paranoid consumers mind...?? :(

I do not believe it is anybodies fault that the cow was infected she was born before the ban of by-products in the feed. Who knew then that this might have caused it.

How soon is that blood test going to be ready to use so farmers won't go bankrupt if their herd is slaughtered because they might have a cow that might have been with an infected cow....
