NCBA President Testifies Before Senate Ag Committee

Thu, 26 May 2016 17:58:54 CDT

NCBA President Testifies Before Senate Ag Committee Statement by National Cattlemen’s Beef Association President Tracy Brunner following his testimony before the Senate Agriculture Committee - A Review of the U.S. Livestock and Poultry Sectors; Marketplace Opportunities and Challenges:



“We appreciate the Senate Agriculture Committee holding this hearing; we see many more opportunities in the cattle industry than challenges. The challenges we do face are the result of regulation, specifically rampant over-regulation from this administration. We need the Senate to focus on defunding the EPA’s 'waters of the United States' final rule and pass the Trans-Pacific Partnership which would give us the best access ever negotiated into the Japanese market. Japan is already our largest export market for U.S. beef, but as the International Trade Commission report confirmed, TPP would add nearly $1 billion in beef exports. What we do not need is the USDA dictating how we market cattle or manage risk in the cattle industry. The industry has developed tools and alternative marketing arrangements that benefit cattle producers and consumers. We’re not asking the Senate to intervene in our contracts; we’re asking the Senate to play their role in expanding market access and ensuring we are not regulated out of business.”
