Administration appeals decision on minimal risk cattle case.

Administration appeals decision on minimal risk cattle case: The Department of Justice last week appealed an earlier decision by a U.S. District Court in Montana that prevents USDA from dropping itsban on imports of Canadian cattle under 31 months of age. In a statement, USDA said: "We remain confident that the requirements of the minimal-risk rule, in combination with the animal and publichealth measures already in place in the United States and Canada, provide the utmost protection to both U.S. consumers and livestock. We also remain fully confident in the underlying risk assessment, developed in accordance with the OIE guidelines, which determined Canada to be a minimal-riskregion."
