The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit today has overturned a lower court's ruling banning imports of Canadian cattle. The National Cattlemen's Beef Association is pleased that the 9th Circuit Court agreed with the science: beef is safe from bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE). U.S. Cattlemen are best served when international trade is based on science and we expect our trading partners to follow the science that BSE does not pose a public health or food safety risk.
