Low-cost cattle bought by U.S. ranchers
By CP


WASHINGTON -- Members of R-CALF, the U.S. ranchers' group that sued -- on safety grounds -- to keep the border closed to Canadian cattle, bought cheap cows in Canada after the devastating ban. That was the word yesterday from the group's president Leo McDonnell in Columbus, Mont.

"I don't see anything ironic about it. I didn't see it as a big deal," he said.

"There's a couple of them that have bought and fed cattle up there, three or four at most," a figure disputed by a Canadian feedlot owner who says it's higher.

Three of those U.S. ranchers have been significant contributors to R-CALF's litigation fund, McDonnell said, an endeavour focused squarely on keeping the border shut.

Some in Canada are furious, saying R-CALF members have exploited a crisis they helped to create.

"It's not illegal but their ethics are terrible," said an Ontario producer.

"I've had enough. I have no use for these guys."

Rick Pascal, a feedlot owner in Lethbridge, said group members "recognized an opportunity for their own personal economic gain.

"They were absolutely not concerned about food safety."

Can't you see that R-CALF is just trying to help us out during our time of troubles. Isn't that what Leo said last time?

Why don't you come on down and open the season up? But that would take more guts than you probably have.

Wow Tommy, you must be a really tough guy!
Bet you're just the terror of the internet chat rooms too.
Probably said bad things to anyone you damn well chose to(thank god for computers).
We're sorry we pointed out your buddies complete lack of scruples, ethics and anything else that would make y'all worthwhile human beings!

Geez, don't invade or anything, eh!

You already now the other side of the R-Calf story. Diseased Canadian beef....risk to US citizens health, etc.

THAT'S what really sells newspapers. Wait and see what happens when that tabloid of truth (The National Enquirer) starts printing about US cases. It will be interesting.
