MEXICO CITY - Mexico will reopen its border to imports of Canadian calves, ending a ban imposed after a 2003 outbreak of mad cow disease in Canada, the government said Saturday.
Starting in March, Mexican ranchers will be allowed to import female cattle under 2 years old for beef and dairy breeding, the Agriculture Department said.
The animals will have to come from herds with no history of the disease.
