The article reports on Purdue Extension agricultural economist Chris Hurt's claim that traders have remained cautious about the status of the live cattle futures market following reports that a California dairy cow has been found to be infected with bovine spongiform encephalopathy. The market has rebounded from the losses incurred due to the reports, but Hurt states that the mood among traders has remained wary. The reports caused futures prices to fall during the April 24, 2012 trading day.
