R-CALF ruling disappoints beef industry

US - Beef producers hoping for an end to their financial suffering were shocked by a U.S. court ruling that slammed the border shut to live Canadian cattle just a few days before it was to open on March 7. Last Wednesday a U.S. district court judge in Montana granted a temporary injunction to prevent the USDA from reopening the border to live Canadian cattle under 30 months. The lobby group, Ranchers-Cattlemen Action Legal Fund (R-CALF), requested the injunction, arguing that opening the border would hurt U.S. producers financially and that Canada is still a BSE risk.
