Canada: Canadian Live Cattle Imports at 10 Year High

Canadian imports of U.S. cattle through November 2017 were at a 10-year high, up almost 370 percent nationwide and up more than 1,000 percent in Alberta, the heart of Canada’s beef cattle industry. Sources indicate that feeder cattle pricing on both sides of the border, tight Canadian feeder cattle supplies, and increased Canadian feedlot activity contributed to the 2017 surge.
