My recollection is that it did not just happen about the time of mad cow disease. It was in response to mad cow disease and was an effort to track diseased cows back to the farm of origin. What a really bad idea.

 Re: COOL in reply to Andy Martin, 02-09-2018 10:33:19  
The way it was explained to Canadian farmers if I remember right was that the US packers had to keep the Canadian and US product separate. Separate pens,separate kills,separate section in the cooler and such all the way down the line. Border states packing plants had to stop buying Canadian cattle or else they bid lower for our cattle to cover the extra costs of COOL. The poultry plant I work at does some halal product and occasionally some antibiotic free birds.All of the extra costs for inspection and segregation can be passed on to the customer but with generic beef it couldn't so the Canadian producers had to pay. The free trade agreements made it very cost effective to kill Canadian cattle in US plants and in some cases ship the meat back north. The mad cow and COOL hit us especially hard because years of free trade had gutted our packing industry meaning we didn't have capacity to slaughter on this side if the border.
