WASHINGTON — U.S. Agriculture Secretary Michael Johanns says it’s unlikely that older Canadian cows and beef products will be crossing the border this year.
Two recent mad cow cases north of the border, including one confirmed in British Columbia this week, have created more work for administrators devising a plan to resume trade, Johanns said Thursday after meeting with Canada’s Agriculture Minister Chuck Strahl for the first time.
