Nebraska Cattlemen’s President Jeff Rudolph is joining State Ag Director Greg Ibach and other ag officials from the state on one leg of their trip to the European Union. Rudolph says he’ll be in London talking with beef customers and others about Nebraska’s product.
Rudolph says he’ll also be looking for ways to help improve Nebraska’s niche market in the United Kingdom while on the visit.
Rudolph says the trip comes at a good time as the U.S. is attempting to negotiate a free trade agreement with the European Union in the T-TIP.
