This story raises some worrying questions for instance:

What happened to this cow's parents and siblings, have they been traced and tested?
Have their meat, milk and cheese and bovine material also entered the food chain?
What farm in the UK did this cow come from?
Is the rest of the herd in the UK being monitored or sent to slaughter?
How many other cows with BSE have entered the Swiss food and medicine chain?
'Different strains' but the disease has the same origins and the same devastating efeect on cattle and human beings.

So the cow originated from the UK and was incubating BSE, it seems we still do not have a grip on this disease all these years later.

Oh no. Thats another hit to the economy sad
