ESCALON, CA – DECEMBER 31: A Holstein cow is shown after being auctioned off at the Escalon Livestock Market December 31, 2003 in Escalon, California. The Bush Administration is taking steps to boost confidence in the U.S. beef supply at home and abroad, where more than 30 countries have banned American beef products since Mad Cow Disease first surfaced in Washington state a week ago. The changes announced Tuesday include a ban on meat from cows that can’t walk or stand on their own and a promise to speed creation of a nationwide animal tracking system.
