A group of Minnesota State Cattlemen Association members were in Washington DC last week making hill visits and lobbying elected officials. Cattlemen’s President Dar Geiss says pushing for trade promotion authority for the President and a successful conclusion to the Trans Pacific Partnership is at the top of their agenda. He says having Japan as part of that is key.

Geiss says they also are monitoring what happens with the development of dietary food guidelines and making sure meat is a part of that is a major concern.

He says they also weighed in on supporting passage of the Grazing Improvement Act and expressed concern at EPA’s proposed rule on Waters of the U.S. which is currently going through a public comment period.
