Iowa’s Secretary of Agriculture is downplaying reports that two Minnesota cows are being monitored for Mad Cow disease. Ag Secretary Patty Judge says the only way Iowa cattle could contract the disease is to eat the spinal or brain tissue of another cow that had it. Judge is more worried by the outbreak of “hoof and mouth” disease in Europe. It’s a highly contagious virus that can spread through air, or through the muck on your shoes. While humans cannot contract the disease, travelers can carry it into the U-S on their clothing. Judge says U-S officials are taking the right steps to prevent the spread of “hoof and mouth” to this country.
