It was a fast 72 hours, but we learned a lot about the Canadian Cattle industry. I was fortunate enough to have traveled with eight other cattle producers on behalf of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association’s Canadian trade team. We were guests of the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association who is very anxious to get the border reopened to live cattle trade. It was my impression that the Canadians have their act together in nearly all aspects of beef production. However, one daunting statistic kept hanging over our head, and that was the BSE score board is still 4-0 in favor of Canada.
