Spencer Beef was popular in Japan before U.S. beef exports were halted in December 2003 when a case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy was discovered in the United States. The Japanese market reopened to beef from cattle 20 months of age or younger in late 2005.

Spencer Beef will be produced only at Cargill’s processing plant in Schuyler, Neb.
