The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has confirmed Canada's latest case of BSE.

Erik butters of the Alberta Beef Producers says the Manitoba cow was born before the 1997 feed ban and shouldn't have an effect on getting older cattle back into the U-S.

"Well we sure hope not", he says, "and we have no reason to suspect it would have any impact".

The CFIA says an investigation will be launched to confirm where the cow was born and what other animals may have eaten the same feed.
