The U.S.A.'s Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE or Mad Cow Disease) policies are discussed. An analysis of the policies, their evolution and the Vermont sheep crisis is conducted to show that the policies cover every aspect of the BSE issue and are constantly updated based on new data as it becomes available. This analysis shows that despite dissent from some involved parties (e.g. farmers, some environmentalists) the approach and policies of U.S. government regarding BSE are reasonable and appropriate.
