U.S.D.A. Cattle Inspectors to Return to Ojinaga, Mexico Next Week

Cattle ranchers in Presidio are breathing a huge sigh of relief.

The United States Department of Agriculture cattle inspectors will be back in Ojinaga, Mexico, next week.

Inspectors used to check and clear cattle that were crossing the border.

But two years ago, those inspectors were pulled out because of concerns over their safety.

That had a huge impact on the presidio and Ojinaga economies because the number of cattle crossing almost disappeared.

Several parties involved with the problem sent in petitions to the federal government to make the change.
