Texas senators press for reopening beef imports to Japan

27 March 2006

SAN ANTONIO — Texas' senators told cattle producers Sunday that they would press to reopen Japan to U.S. beef imports. In December, Japan had lifted a ban on American beef imposed after the first U.S. case of mad cow disease in 2003. Until then, Japan was the top foreign buyer of American beef, accounting for around $1.4 billion in sales in 2003. Source:
