Ranchers Worry About USDA's Moving Of Cattle Checkpoints

Concerns about drug cartel violence have led the U.S. Department of Agriculture to move some of its cattle inspection stations from Mexico into the United States.  The government says the check-points for imported cattle will be north of the Rio Grande temporarily. 

Some ranchers, however, fear that parasite or cattle diseases could spread into the states.  That could carry a hefty price tags for cattle owners who have to treat sick cattle. 

The USDA says it will ensure the importation of cattle remains safe.
