Canada's beef industry is applauding the announcement that Mexico will lift a 13-year-long ban on some Canadian cattle imports this October.

The Canadian Cattlemen's Association says the move could lead to tens of millions of dollars in additional beef exports.

Mexico imposed a ban on Canadian beef imports in 2003 over fears of mad cow disease -- and while some restrictions were lifted a year later, a ban on cattle over 30 months old is still in place.
