The article states that with the recent confirmation of a second case of mad cow disease in the U.S., the U.S. Dept of Agriculture (USDA) is accelerating efforts at implementing a National Animal Identification System (NAIS). USDA announced in late June 2005 that a second case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or mad cow disease, was confirmed. An initial test in November 2004 indicated that the cow suffered from mad cow disease, but the USDA conducted two other tests to confirm the result. Beef leaders in at least one Southeast state is endorsing USDA's plan to implement a NAIS.
