Beef imports not making up for lost cattle
U.S. beef imports from Canada are not making up for the fed cattle that
were being brought across the border for slaughter before they were blocked
in May 2003 when bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) was discovered north
of the border.
Currently, only boneless beef from young cattle is allowed to cross the
border. No live cattle may enter the U.S. from Canada, and even certain
cuts and beef products aren't allowed to enter.
