The first shipment of beef left Alberta yesterday on a plane bound for Japan. The beef was shipped out of the Cargill plant at High River Alberta. Japanese will soon have our quality product on their plates for dinner. :D

OMG! And without the USDA stamp? Is that possible? Don't tell OT, he'll have to learn a new song to sing.

I have as many smiles as you do...I have no problems with you shipping all the beef you got to Japan...Just don't run it or the cows down here first so the Packers can play their games with them....

Might go over good since it will be a completely new product-Product of Canada :wink: :lol:

Canadian packers have had offices in Japan for years. Planes and boats left directly from Canadian soil, OT.

Americans aren't the only ones that realized Canada had quality.

Because the USDA is afraid of losing market share to foreigners, right?

But let's not forget whose beef was back on their plates, first. :D
No, not Texas. Not Wyoming. Not Montana...




By golly, I believe it was Nebraska beef. :cboy:

It was California beef shipped by Harris. Their plant was the first certified on Monday following the lifting of the ban. Product from that days kill was shipped out that Wednesday. California gets the honor of exporting the first load of beef to Japan.

I read an article that claimed that the american "A40" (I think it's called) age verification process eliminated 93 % of 'under 20 month' beef from being eligible to ship to Japan. Anyone else been hearing such things?
