KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — What a difference 8½ years makes. When the first bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE)-infected cow was found in Mabton, Wash., in December 2003, U.S. beef exports had been steadily increasing, with 1.1 million tons carcass weight equivalent (CWE) exported in 2003. By the end of 2004, U.S. beef exports had fallen 82 percent to 200,000 tons CWE as major importers cut off the purchase of U.S. beef. It was not until 2011 that beef exports regained their previous level.
