CALGARY, Alta. – Mexico in August followed the lead of the U.S. in allowing some Canadian beef products into its country. Boneless meat cuts from cattle under 30 months of age and lamb and goats under 12 months of age will be allowed into Mexico.

“As of today, the Secretariat of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food will begin to admit requests to import certain beef products that, in accordance with the scientific evidence, present no risk to human or animal health,” said an August press release from the Mexican government.

Live cattle continued to be banned at that time. The products allowed under the partial lifting of the ban in August accounted for 85 per cent of what Mexico normally imports from Canada.
