America One Step Closer To Selling Beef In China Again

Beef trade protocols with China have been finalized by USDA

"America's ranchers raise the best and highest quality beef in the world, and I applaud the administration for its work to move this agreement across the finish line", Conaway said.

Chinese and American negotiators have reached a preliminary agreement in the process of selling US raised beef in China, the Department of Agriculture announced Monday.

China stopped importing United States beef in 2003 due to concerns about Mad Cow disease.

The release noted that the technical documents concerning the start of beef shipments have been posted. Cattle must be traceable either to their birth farm or, if initially imported into the USA, to the first place of residence or port of entry. They also said until the ban took effect, the US was China's largest supplier of imported beef, providing 70 percent of their total intake.

Chilled or frozen bone-in and deboned beef products are eligible for shipment.

In addition to Perdue, several other members of the Trump Administration expressed their pleasure with getting closer to accessing the Chinese market.

US farmers will soon be allowed to export beef to China for the first time in more than 13 years after reaching a final agreement in trade talks.

All About James Comey
Trump Jr tweeted "you would think a guy like Comey " would know the difference between "hoping and telling". Later on in his testimony, Comey added that he "was fired because of the Russian Federation investigation".

Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross adds, "As we clear away long-standing issues like this one, focusing on near-term, verifiable deliverables, we are building a sound foundation for further discussions". "China is the world's second largest beef market".

"As one of the world's largest importers of beef, China has long-been an area of great opportunity for the USA beef industry", Conaway said.

China's beef imports increased to $2.5 billion a year ago from $275 million in 2012, according to the USDA. By 2016 it has jumped to $2.5 billion. USA producers and the industry must work together to ensure these criteria are met, thereby securing this needed market access for years to come.

Senator Deb Fischer said the deal is a win for ag producers across the state.

The Trump administration today released guidance on shipping beef to China, and House Agriculture Committee Chairman Michael Conaway, R-Texas, and House Agriculture Livestock and Foreign Agriculture Subcommittee Chairman David Rouzer, R-N.C., and Sen.

National Cattlemen's Beef Association (NCBA) officials worked with USDA during the process, says Craig Uden president of NCBA.

"NCBA commends the leadership of President Trump and our skilled negotiators who were able to restore USA beef access to China, something that has been a top priority for NCBA for 13 years", Uden says.
