Any hope for Canadian producers to do something like this?

If we want a sustainable cattle and beef industry in this country we will need to do it ourselves folks. The goal of the companies that we trust to sell our beef is to make beef the same all over the world. If they can't get that "same" product cheap enough from us, they will supply it from another one of their plants in another part of the world.


U.S. beef producers plan to expand their exports to the
European Union to 12,000 tons in 2008 to tap into growing demand for biological
foods products, Die Welt reported, citing US Meat Export Federation (USMEF)
president Philip Seng.

At that foot juncture, the existing meat import quota will have been
reached, it said.

"The US government is currently negotiating a significant increase of the
quota," Seng told the newspaper.

In the first eight months of this year, exports of organic beef to the EU
rose 120 pct to 4,500 tons compared with the year-earlier period and will
probably total about 6,000 tons for the full year, it said.

Brazil is currently the biggest beef supplier to the EU, Die Welt said. Reply With Quote
