The newest edition of Agri-Pulse Newsmakers is out and this week the focus is on cattle hearings and beef politics.
The House and Senate Agriculture Committees both convened hearings to examine the beef sector this week. Now, Congress is left to determine its next steps and whether or not to pursue big reforms to the nation’s cattle sector.
Newsmakers interviews Rep. Dusty Johnson (R-SD) and then gets comments from U.S. Cattlemen’s Associations’s Lia Biondo, North American Meat Institute’s Mark Dopp, and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association’s Ethan Lane on the hearings and where Congress goes from here.
