First case of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) in Sweden
BSE is a worldwide disease that had never been reported in Sweden although also this country runs routine BSE tests. As soon as the suspicion was raised due to the positive rapid test, the 50 animals in the herd in Vastmanland were put under restrictions.


Dr. Leif Denneberg, Chief Veterinary Officer, Swedish Board of Agriculture, Jonkoping gave the information that one crossbred beef cow born in 1994 was the only affected animal in a herd with 50 animals on a farm in Vastmanland.

Laboratories where diagnostic tests were performed included:

National Veterinary Institute (SVA), Uppsala
1) Biorad TeSeE Elisa rapid test; - Western blot; - immunostained sections; 3 Feb 2006; positive.

OIE Reference Laboratory, Veterinary Laboratories Agency (VLA), Weybridge, United Kingdom
2) OIE Western blot; - VLA hybrid Western blot; - review of SVA immunostained sections; 3 Mar 2006; positive

The cow was culled due to problems with its hind limbs after milk fever and was sent for destruction.

Samples were taken at the rendering plant as part of the BSE surveillance scheme.

Fertility of dairy cows after adding superphosphate to the drinking watermembers
Mean serum inorganic phosphorus concentrations of cows in an infertile dairy herd of 170 cows in the Hunter Valley increased from less than 4.5 mg/100 ml to greater than 5.8 mg/100 ml after defluorinated superphosphate was added to their drinking water. Does this improve the fertility?
