CALGARY, Alta. — The U.S. has re-affirmed its plans to re-open its border to live Canadian cattle on March 7.
The announcement was made today, after a contingent of U.S. cattle professionals visited Canada to inspect the cattle industry’s meat handling practices. The border has been closed since a case of Mad Cow disease surfaced on an Alberta farm in May, 2003.
Two new made cow cases earlier this year jeopardized the March 7 re-opening of the border, however, U.S. officials say the border will re-open as planned.
