    Food mail order is not a big thing in Canada. I've been looking for years & years of Canadian establishments that will sell premium(the absolute best) Canadian beef to consumers by mail-order. I don't know of any.

      I think there may be issues relating to Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy and shipping Alberta beef over to the US. You might want to ask the Alberta Beef Producers if any of their members ship. http://www.albertabeef.org

        That's mad cow disease for those who don't have a PhD in animal diseases :)

          :P Thanks Yen I was trying not to fall into the media hype of using the nickname. You're lucky I didn't just call it BSE!

            I think more people know BSE, than the written out form. Heck, even Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease might pass better :)

          It also goes for the other way. Most-to-all US beef mail order sources won't ship to Canada(that goes back even before the mad cow disease problems).
