Ranchers, USDA At Odds Over Brazilian Beef


The burger or steak on your dinner plate could come from Brazil if a new proposal by the USDA goes into effect.

The Federal Agency is now taking comments on the idea of re-opening the market to Brazilian beef imports.  The proposal could lower the price of beef for consumers.   But as SDPB’s Charles Michael Ray reports the idea irks many in the ranching industry.
