I say we test every cow we use to slaughter. The cost is only $30 dollars per head and it would be money well spent. The safety of the product would be greatly increased and it would restore confidence. It would also force American cattle to be tested, possibly finding cases of BSE.
In the end, I guess, my question is still this:
Do you think BSE cases have been covered up?
Did the price of the tests go up? When they had that BSE scare in washington I recall they stated it would cost approximately 12.00 per head.

The point is in order to test the cow, you gotta perform an autopsy, which destroys that particular cow, I believe.
Currently, actually today, Canadian ranchers launched a 7 billion dollar law suit trying to claim that infected cows from other countries that were lost in "tracking" may have been to blame for our cases.
