BSE strikes again

The prior cases of BSE seemed an isolated incident and now another has been reported. This has occurred just before the border was to open. The American authorities have dispatched a team to look into our disease control practices. Obviously the border is not oppening any time soon. Again there is an indefinate delay... I understand and respect the American concern for the safety of the beef coming into the US. Unfortunately this is going to cause a lot more suffering and financial hardship for alot of cattlemen in Canada and as such this is regrettable and sadly it comes just when they seemed to have a glimmer of hope of getting the industry up and running again.
