Inhofe Joins the Oklahoma Cattlemen's and Farm Bureau in Thanking Trump Team for China Deal

Mon, 12 Jun 2017 18:49:48 CDT

Inhofe Joins the Oklahoma Cattlemen's and Farm Bureau in Thanking Trump Team for China Deal U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), today applauded the end of the 13-year ban on U.S. beef imports into China.


On April 5, Inhofe joined 36 Senators in sending a letter to President Trump urging him to prioritize reopening China’s market to U.S. beef.


“By ending the ban on U.S. beef imports into China, the Trump administration is demonstrating his ability to get better deals with our trade partners,” Inhofe said. “This is a huge win for Oklahoma, which produces the fifth most cattle in the country, and our hard-working cattlemen by giving them access to one of the largest beef markets in the world. For 13 years domestic cattle producers have been handicapped by this ban, but by lifting it the Trump administration is taking action that levels the playing field for our nation’s beef industry.”


The Oklahoma Farm Bureau and the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association also praised the end of the ban.


“The Oklahoma Farm Bureau applauds the work done by the Trump Administration to end the 13 year ban on U.S. beef imports to China," said Tom Buchanan, president of the Oklahoma Farm Bureau. "By reopening one of the largest beef markets in the world to Oklahoma beef exports, America’s trade policy will once again work for rural America. This action will ensure America’s high-quality beef exports are able to compete successfully.”


“China is one of the largest importers of beef in the world,” said Michael Kelsey, executive vice president of the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association. “Bolted shut since 2003, this agreement opens the door into China’s market for US beef. In Oklahoma, Beef is the second largest economic driver so it goes without saying this is big news for all of Oklahoma. We are appreciate of the Trump administration trade team for their great and quick work to secure this important deal.”
