Cattlemen Applaud Terry Branstad's Confirmation as Ambassador to China, Calls Him the Ideal Person

Mon, 22 May 2017 18:18:58 CDT

Cattlemen Applaud Terry Branstad's Confirmation as Ambassador to China, Calls Him the Ideal Person Craig Uden, president of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, today released the following statement in response to the U.S. Senate’s confirmation of Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad to be the U.S. Ambassador to China:


“As the six-term governor of a state with more than $10 billion in annual agricultural exports, Terry Branstad is an ideal person to help facilitate the U.S. beef industry’s return to the Chinese market for the first time in 13-plus years. Ambassador Branstad has said that he intends to serve American-produced beef at the U.S. embassy in Beijing, and America’s cattle producers look forward to working with him to make that a reality as soon as possible.”


In addition, Mike Cline, president of the Iowa Cattlemen's Association, said:


"Ambassador Branstad has been a great friend to Iowa cattlemen and the agriculture industry as Governor of Iowa. He has shown a great commitment to the growth of beef and other agricultural exports, and we look forward to the work he will do on behalf of all Americans in his new capacity as Ambassador to China."
