Investigators with the U.S. Department of Agriculture say the records for the infected cow do go back any further than an auction last year where she was sold.

They say this is partly because the U.S. lacks a livestock tracking system, which the Bush administration promised two years ago.

Meanwhile, investigators say the infected Alabama cow did not have any ear tags, tattoos or brands and spent less than a year on the farm where she recently died.
