    Closed border bad for feedlots, packers

    "We want to do business with Canada, but we don't want to trade at the risk of our industry," said Shae Dodson, a Billings, Mont.-based R-CALF spokeswoman. "We don't want to introduce BSE into our American herd -- or any other foreign disease." This statement sound so much like what Canada...
