NCBA Says Cattle Producers Will Be Casualties to Canadian Tariff Hikes on U.S. Beef Products

Fri, 29 Jun 2018 12:17:57 CDT

NCBA Says Cattle Producers Will Be Casualties to Canadian Tariff Hikes on U.S. Beef Products Kent Bacus, Director of International Trade and Market Access for the National Cattlemen's Beef Association, today released the following statement in response to Canada's announcement of higher tariffs on U.S. beef products beginning on Sunday, July 1:



"For the past few weeks Canada has threatened to retaliate against the United States by slapping a tariff on $170 million worth of U.S. beef products in direct response to the steel and aluminum tariffs. Today, they made good on that threat. These retaliatory tariffs were and still are clearly avoidable, and the unfortunate casualties will be Canadian consumers and America’s cattlemen and cattlewomen. We may not know the extent of the damage these tariffs may have on our producers, but we believe that cooperation is a better path forward than escalation. As Canadians gather to celebrate Canada Day and we prepare to celebrate American Independence, we encourage our government and the Canadian government to remember that we are allies and we rely on each other for future economic prosperity."
