NCBA's Craig Uden Says Trans Pacific Partnership is Crucial to U.S. Beef Industry

NCBA's Craig Uden Says Trans Pacific Partnership is Crucial to U.S. Beef Industry


While it is unlikely Congress will ratify the Trans Pacific Partnership this calendar year, Craig Uden, president elect of the National Cattlemen's Beef Association, says the trade agreement remains at the forefront of his mind.


U.S. cattle producers currently pay a 38 percent tariff to Japan - its largest exporter - at a cost of over $100 million a year. In comparison, Australia has signed a bilateral agreement with Japan and significantly decreased its tariff.


Radio Oklahoma Network Farm Director Ron Hays recently talked with Uden who says an agreement like TPP would help level the playing field when it comes to exporting American beef.


“We have to be the ones who help write the rules or we are going to be boxed out while these other countries write their own agreements one-on-one,” Uden says.


Uden talks about the TPP and the importance of global markets during this week’s Beef Buzz.


The Beef Buzz is a regular feature heard on radio stations around the region on the Radio Oklahoma Network- but is also a regular audio feature found on this website as well.
