I'm betting the green grass, extra rain, and full stock dams have a lot more to do with it than does the closed border. Also the fact that the ratio now is one cow per nine United States citizens verses one cow per four U.S. citizens not too many years ago. (This was in a speech given by an agricultural economist last week at the Sandhills Cattle Association convention, but I missed the time frame.)
