United States Cattlemen’s Group Watching Brazil Trade Talks Closely

United States Cattlemen’s Group Watching Brazil Trade Talks Closely

USDA and Brazil’s Ministry of Agriculture recently agreed to a path forward to amend rules that currently limit bilateral beef trade.  The U.S. Cattlemen’s Association is keeping a close eye on those discussions. Executive Vice President Jess Peterson says they want to make sure Brazil keeps on top of animal health issues like foot and mouth disease which have been a problem in the past.

Peterson says whatever the U.S. and Brazil agree to with any trade deal, it must follow sound science based standards.

The United States and Brazil currently have some 100 agricultural cooperative agreements and hope to expand on that in the future.
