Discovery of mad cow in Calif. was stroke of luck
HANFORD, Calif. (AP) -- A non-descript building in the heart of California's dairy country has become the focus of intense scrutiny now that mad cow disease has been discovered in a dead dairy cow.
The finding, announced Tuesday, is the first new case of the disease in the U.S. since 2006 -- and the fact that the discovery was made at all was a stroke of luck. Tests are performed on only a small portion of dead animals brought to the transfer facility near Hanford.
