U.S. Trade Representative Froman Says TPP is Crucial to Beef's Global Market AccessThu, 14 Apr 2016 18:57:04 CDT
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.
