Open Border?

The lingering effects of US protectionism remain after the border has been re-opened to Canadian beef producers.

"'Initially, we expected a big flow of feeder cattle to go south, but we've understood is there's not enough USDA-certified feedlots' to take them, Penner says. 'When they go south, they have to stay in that facility until they're finished.
They can't be mixed with American cattle.
'And once they're ready for slaughter, to come out of there, the cattle have to be branded as having come from Canada,' Penner says. "

Prairie cattlemen will make do, but it's still tough to make a buck in the cattle business these days.
