International Trade Issues at #BeefMeet Summer Meeting

Chuck Zimmerman

2020 Cattle Industry Summer Business MeetingThe 2020 Cattle Industry Summer Business Meeting is taking place in Denver, CO. Committees will be meeting to provide direction for the organizations that participate which include the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion & Research Board, American National CattleWomen, Inc. and the National Cattlemen’s Foundation. We have created a virtual ag newsroom on AgNewsWire to provide a resource for all media that includes interviews and more during the event.

To get things started I spoke with Kent Bacus, NCBA senior director of international trade and market access. His work focuses on leveling the playing field for U.S. beef producers around the world. Kent says that prior to COVID-19 things were looking great for U.S. beef exports. He says that once the cloud of COVID-19 lifts, the industry is in a much better position to recover. Learn more in my interview with Kent.
