Penton Farm Progress reports:

The Mexican government is in the process of making regulatory changes that will allow for imports of U.S. beef and beef products derived from cattle of any age, the U.S. Meat Export Federation said this week.

The decision would lift the 30-month cattle age limit that has been in place for more than 10 years, and effectively remove the last of Mexico's BSE-related restrictions on imports of U.S. beef.

According to Chad Russell, U.S. Meat Export Federation regional director for Mexico, Central America and the Dominican Republic, the change will open important new supply options for Mexico, where buyers have growing concerns about the impact of rising beef prices and tight supplies in a market that is very price-sensitive.

The changes in Mexico's import regulations are to be effective immediately.
