Cindy Zimmerman

U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue sat down with National Cattlemen’s Beef Association President Jennifer Houston on Wednesday to talk about issues important to the thousands of cattle industry representatives attending the 2020 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show, in San Antonio, TX.

The new trade deal with China and the signing of USMCA were big topics of discussion, both on stage and with reporters during a press availability afterward. Secretary Perdue also shared his views on the future of “fake meat” and his preference for a “good old juicy beef burger any day of the week.”
