This week the U.S. Cattlemen’s Association Annual Meeting and Cattle Producers Forum is underway in Billings, Montana. Cattlemen and cattlewomen from across America are in attendance hearing updates from industry leaders on topics of importance to the U.S. cattle industry.

Kenny Graner is the USCA president from Mandan, North Dakota and says a big topic this year is trade.

“USCA is continuing our work in addressing U.S. beef access to international markets and maintaining needed safeguards and snap back provisions in any new trade deal entered into” said Graner. “Specifically, as the NAFTA negotiations continue, USCA has urged for the reestablishment of a country-of-origin labeling (COOL) program to be included in any agreement signed, as U.S. cattle producers across the country won’t declare the renegotiation efforts a success unless our product is accurately labeled.”
