The department of agriculture has quarantined two farms in the wake of a "mad cow disease" investigation.
This is video of the California rendering plant where an infected cow was discovered last month.
The dairy farm where the cow came from has been under quarantine since the discovery.
U-s-d-a agents are working to see if any other at-risk cows are present at a second farm associated with the dairy.
This was the fourth case of mad cow discovered in the u-s since 2003.
Authorities say the infected cow was not intended for the food supply, and there's no reason to believe any beef is at risk.
