USDA Confirms Mad Cow Case in Ala.

Authorities said the farm was under an informal quarantine but would not say where it was.

"We will not release this information at this time until we complete our investigation, and that could take a few days," said Alabama agriculture commissioner Ron Sparks.

The cow had spent less than a year there before it died, officials said.

Federal and state investigators are working to determine the cow's age, where it was born and raised and locate its herdmates and offspring. Sparks said there are no suspect animals on the farm.

No more meat for me. Unless it is goat.
