Calf Born to BSE-infected Cow Buried in Landfill

MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced today that one of the calves belonging to an Alabama cow infected with mad cow was buried in a landfill.

Officials have not disclosed the location of the farm where the infected cow spent the last year. Two calves have been linked to the cow. One is being monitored at a USDA lab in Ames, Iowa.

The other was taken by the owner to a local stockyard in July 2005 where the calf died. Officials say the calf was "appropriately disposed of" in a local landfill. Officials haven't revealed the location of the landfill.

Officials say the calf and its mother did not enter the human or animal food chain.
