USCA Applauds USDA Efforts to Expand Trade with Mexico

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 11:37:58 CDT

USCA Applauds USDA Efforts to Expand Trade with Mexico The United States Cattlemen's Association (USCA) issued the following statement on the recent announcement by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) regarding current trade relations with Mexico and Peru. USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack announced that an agreement has been reached with the two countries that will allow greater access of U.S. beef and pork products to the region.

The following statement may be attributed to USCA President Danni Beer:

"This announcement marks the first time in over a decade that U.S. beef producers will be allowed to export older cattle to Mexico. This will be effective immediately.

On behalf of USCA, I would like to applaud and congratulate the efforts of the USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack, Under Secretary Edward Avalos and the entire USDA trade staff. Their work has secured market access for U.S. cattle producers and will serve to promote U.S. beef. USDA is continually seeking to eliminate trade barriers to U.S. cattle and beef products and this announcement is a positive indicator for the success of future negotiations.

Mexico is an important market for U.S. cattle producers and one that we want to keep growing. While U.S. cattle producers are currently enjoying strong domestic markets, it is critical that similar market access agreements continue to be pursued. USCA looks forward to working with USDA on future US beef market access opportunities."
