Officials confirm mad cow case in Texas | News for Denton, Texas | AP: Texas: "The first case of mad cow disease in a U.S.-born animal has been traced to a 12-year-old beef cow raised in Texas, the country's largest beef producing state, the Agriculture Department announced Wednesday.

Department officials would not identify the cow's owner or the town where the animal came from, although they said the animal had only one owner.

'Obviously, it's disheartening to learn the animal is from Texas,' said Shane Sklar, executive director of the Independent Cattle Association of Texas. 'But we move forward from here and we work to eradicate BSE from the United States.'"
