A proposal from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency would allow more U.S. cattle to be exported to Canada. The agency is proposing to lift bluetongue restrictions for cattle and other ruminants imported into Canada from the U.S.
Not only is the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association calling it a victory, but the organization representing Canada’s cattlemen is praising the move.
John Masswhol of the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association says it is one of the most important things the Canadian government can do to facilitate normal cattle trade between Canada and the U.S.
