increased testing

Just a very short post today - came across this in the news today in relation to a possible new case of mad cow discovered in the U.S. Of course, they won't tell us where, only that more testing is going to be done. But not to worry, according to this story "In response to the first case, the Agriculture Department increased its level of testing for the disease. As of Friday, 644,603 of the nation’s estimated 95 million head of cattle had been tested." I feel so much safer now knowing that the U.S. tests just about 2/3 of 1% of it's cattle. Mooooo . . .
