Consumer organisations and the meat trade were last night calling for consumers to remain calm amidst fears of “mad bull” having been detected on the mainland. Within days of a report having been released confirming that sales of beef have recovered from the mad cow crisis which gripped Spain and the Balearics earlier this year and that beef will very much be back on the menu over Christmas and the New Year, the cattle farming community is worried that a “mad bull” scare could have a negative effect on the beef market in general. Only last week a new case of mad cow was confirmed in Majorca, bringing the total number of cases in the Balearics to eight.
