How has BSE been eradicated from the cattle population?

BSE stands for Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy and is a disease of the bovine brain. It is also known as mad cow disease. BSE still exists today. In the past, when cows are known to be infected with this disease, they are usually slaughtered. Additionally, there is a ban on meat and bone meal, as this is a risk factor for cows contracting the disease. In 2012, a dairy cow in California tested positive for BSE. BSE is still a threat and has not been totally eradicated.


How do cows get mad cow?

Cows contract BSE from eating contaminated feed laced with the prions from cows that have died of BSE or had BSE and entered the animal food chain. These dead cows or sheep or goats get ground up and mixed with feed to be fed to other ruminants. Chicken feces that are fed to cows (yes, cows do eat chicken feces) can also have the prions because the chickens were fed animal by-products. Cows can also get BSE from the milk of their dams when they're calves, or even from the blood that the cow shares with her calf in the womb. BSE is also thought to spread through genetics. Since the feed ban in 1995 in Canada (and around the same time in the States), it was suspected that cases around 2005 would pop up. Since then, if the feed ban is still in effect and no one is feeding animal by-products to ruminants (which may not be likely, as there still maybe some idiots who still feed their cattle animal byproducts), no more BSE cases should pop up in the USA and Canada.

How does BSE spread and how has the governments around the world attempt to prevent outbreaks?

BSE spreads if the original organism who has it, in this case the cows, is eaten by another organism, in this case would be the humans. The governments around the world have tried to prevent outbreaks by banning people to kill the cows for food if they are over 30 months of age. In most cases, BSE has been seen in bovines at the start of age four. Hence the reason why some govs have prevented eating bovine that are over 30 months old. Other govs around the world have refused to import, or banned the import of, livestock from other countries where BSE exists. They have additional protections for their own bovine to reduce the chances of the country's people getting BSE. I hope this answers your question, and to those who are reading it, I hope this makes sense.

How do cows get bovine spongiform encephalopathy?

Cows become infected with the prion that causes bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) by ingesting it. The prion is a misfolded protein found primarily in the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). When a cow died with BSE and was rendered (basically cooked down into unrecognizable amino acids), the prion was not broken down. This rendered bovine protein was then added back to cow's rations to provide them a balanced nutritional diet - but it also infected them with the prion.
