CALGARY, Alta. — Canadian cattle haulers may not be out of the wood yet, as U.S. special interest groups are beginning to make some noise about the re-opening of the U.S. border to Canadian cattle.
Alberta Motor Transport Association (AMTA) executive director, Kim Royal, recently said: "We are not out of the woods yet as there will be a move by U.S. protectionist groups to get an injunction to keep the border closed to Canadian cattle."
That appears to be the case now as the United Stockgrowers of America have launched a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Agriculture over its plan to allow live Canadian cattle imports as of March 7. It’s not yet clear whether the lawsuit will impact the scheduled re-opening date.
