Sheep producers to export to USA?

SHEEP producers might have a future developing an export trade to the USA, reports The Herald.

A spokesman from the Meat and Livestock Commission is enthusiastic about the potential.

But the American Sheep Industry Association wants quotas and/or tariffs to curb imports.
