Mexico Resumes Imports

<a href="">Mexico lifts ban on U.S. bone-in beef</a><br />n<br />n<blockquote>In a statement released late Wednesday afternoon, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced that Mexico will resume imports of U.S. bone-in beef from cattle less than 30 months of age. However, no official timetable for the resumption of trade has been made available.<br />n<br />nAg Secretary Mike Johanns was quoted as saying "Mexico's decision to further open its market to U.S. beef is a testament to the safety of U.S. beef and a clear expression of confidence in the U.S. safeguards to prevent <acronym title="Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy">BSE</acronym> (bovine spongiform encephalography). As a NAFTA partner and our second largest export market, the normalization of beef trade with Mexico is great news for our farmers and ranchers."</blockquote><br />n<br />nDon't you just love it, they will resume imports <b>but</b> they don't specify when. Like I always say, every little bit helps but knowing when would be nice.<br />n<br />n<b>Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
