U.S. Trade Representative Froman Says TPP is Crucial to Beef's Global Market Access


As National Cattlemenís Beef Association members wrap up their annual Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C. this week, ratification of the Trans-Pacific Partnership remains a high priority for the beef industry.

While in the nationís capital, cattlemen heard from Ambassador Michael Froman, U.S. Trade Representative, who says the 12-country trade agreement could increase annual net farm income in the United States by $4.4 billion.

Froman encouraged NCBA members to continue pushing for a vote this Congressional session, although if it happens, it will most likely be during the lame-duck session following the November general election.

Listen to Fromanís comments regarding the benefits of TPP during this edition of the Beef Buzz.
