Slovenia suspects new case of mad cow disease

LJUBLJANA, Feb 29 (Reuters) - The Slovene Veterinary Administration on Friday reported a suspected new case of mad cow disease.

The administration said preliminary tests indicated bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) in a six-year-old cow from a farm in Slovenia.

"Further tests will be made in the following days, with the final results expected in the beginning of the next week," it said in a statement.

If confirmed, this would be the ninth case of BSE in Slovenia, the current president of the European Union. The last case was reported in April last year.
