This article reports that U.S. Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns plans to convince Japan to end the ban on U.S. beef imports before deciding whether to scale back mad cow testing, as of April 2006. The wishes of Japan, which was the biggest export market for the U.S. beef industry, will not influence the Agriculture Department's testing decision.
