The Bush Administration planned to re-open American imports to Canadian beef more than a year after the fist case of Mad Cow disease was discovered there. But now, a new case of the neurological disorder has been found on an Alberta ranch. Linda Detweiler talks about what this latest case means to the agricultural industries in both countries. Hear Detweiler, a former advisor on Mad Cow to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and NPR's Renee Montagne.
