U.S. sheep industry seeks legal action over imports
The U.S. sheep industry is taking a stand against imports. Groups like R-Calf say they are being decimated, with more than 60 percent of inventory now gone.
The American Sheep Industry Association is weighing its options for legal action. Group Director Peter Orwick says they are looking at the strength of their case. They estimate a lawsuit would cost more than $1 million and take over a year to litigate.
They say their case rests on two factors including injury to the entire industry as a result of more imports as well a dumping violations.
