LOL! Mexico has been importing/exporting beef, pork, fruits, veggies to the US for a long time. I can't tell you how many cattle trucks, etc go back and forth BOTH ways here in the border town. You'd be amazed at what WE send over there. I gots some good friends in Customs. Unless, your area is selling local grown and raised, chances are, it's coming from Mexico or some other place.

I think a few others have some type of operations there too. Not just anyone wants to hold a slaughter house job. It's a brutal job. I'll leave it at that. That's how many of those companies keep costs and prices as low as possible.

Take a look at where most of our seafood comes from.

Luckily, the gubment requires the origin to be labeled.

Are the beef raising operations there mostly feed lots? If so, it wouldn't be that much different than beef raised in Texas or Oklahoma -- and slaughtered by mexican laborers.

Problem? The "astoundment" was that we're in the heart of beef country here and I'd never seen it before!

Same here. We have plenty of local cattle farms in the area

Who cares as long as it's done according to US quality standards and more importantly(to me), in a humane manner. We all love meat on this forum, and I think we always need to remember where it comes from.
