Mexico beef exports to US.

“ Mr. Matz said the Mexican Government removed the gazetted tariff to address the scarcity of beef in the domestic Mexican market and said the move will apply for the rest of 2016. “


“ Mexican beef exports have grown rapidly in recent years.  Total beef exports began increasing in 2009 and have increased from about 28 thousand metric tons in 2008 to over 161 thousand metric tons in 2015, a nearly six-fold increase. 
Currently, Mexico is the tenth largest beef exporting country, exceeding Argentina for the first time in 2015. The U.S. is the largest destination for Mexican beef exports and the U.S. share of total Mexican beef exports has increased from around 60 percent a few years ago to 90 percent in 2015.

IMO, COOL should be reinstated and No box meats should be allowed in the US with out the country of origin labeling on it.
“USDA Ends COOL Enforcement With President’s Signature on Omnibus Bill
By News Desk | December 21, 2015
Effective immediately, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack says,  USDA will no longer enforce the Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) requirements for beef and pork products because COOL was repealed by Congress.
Congress included COOL repeal in the $1.4 trillion omnibus spending bill after the World Trade Organization (WTO)  ruled Canada and Mexico could begin imposing more than $1 billion in tariffs on U.S. products to punish it for the harm the labeling requirements were doing to them. “
