Ireland has a case of BSE

An 18-year-old cow has been confirmed as infected with Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy, better know as BSE or mad cow’s disease.

It is the “atypical form” of the disease which is believed to sometimes spontaneously develop, usually in older animals.

It will not affect Ireland’s beef exports because the world animal health organization has not changed Ireland’s status because of this case.
