Agriculture minister argues case for opening U.S. border to live cattle

CANADA - Agriculture Minister Andy Mitchell came away empty-handed Saturday after arguing the case for reopening the Canada-U.S. border to live cattle exports in a meeting with his American counterpart. Mitchell travelled to New York City specifically to meet U.S. Agriculture Secretary Ann Veneman face to face for the first time and described her as "very businesslike" as they discussed the mad cow crisis that has been crushing the Canadian cattle industry for 16 months.
