Border ban also hurts U.S. meat processors

US - It's well known the Canadian cattle industry has been taking a licking since the U.S. closed its border to our beef, but how have things been going in the land of the Stars and Stripes? According to one American economist, 5,000 Americans have lost their jobs in the processing industry, which has lost between $900 and $950 million in annual sales since the border closed. "The costs we've incurred in these industries across these two countries, we're never going to make up those losses," said Ted Schroeder, a professor of agricultural economics at Kansas State University. "I think irreparable harm's been done."
