Area Farmers Taking Part In Trade Mission To Japan

 

Area farmers are in Japan as part of a U. S. Meat Export Federation trade mission to promote U.S. beef now that the country is accepting product up to 30 months of age.  Nebraska farmer and Incoming Meat Federation Chair Mark Jagels says the 20 month restriction was in place nearly a decade so they’re excited about expanding exports with the easing of the ban.

Jagels says since Japan changed the import rule in February U.S. beef sales have already increased.

He says they want to ensure Japanese consumers U.S. beef is safe and promote their own branded product….Nebraska Corn Fed Beef.   They ‘ll also assess the recovery in areas hit by the Tsunami since they helped fund relief efforts in that area
