US, Mexican, and Canadian cattle producers unite to protect production

Leaders from North American cattle groups are uniting to protect cattle production in Canada, the U.S., and Mexico.

The groups, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, the Confederación Nacional de Organizaciones Ganaderas (CNOG), and the Canadian Cattle Association (CCA), have signed a joint statement asking for greater oversight of emerging lab-grown proteins, protection of cattle from animal diseases, and promotion of the cattle industry’s sustainability.

NCBA president and Wyoming rancher Mike Eisele says the letter sent to U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai, Secretaria de Economía Raquel Buenrostro Sanchez, and Minister of Export Promotion, International Trade and Economic Development Mary Ng, urges the governments to re-engage in opening markets for beef exports and provide stronger science-based oversight of beef imports.    

Cattle producers from the three countries are standing together to hold trade partners accountable.  Eisele says the U.S. remains concerned that Brazil still has access to the U.S. market despite its failure to disclose animal health issues.  He says producers are urging their respective governments to block Brazilian imports to protect the beef supply.

The letter and joint statement were signed at during the CNOG Convention in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, by NCBA President Mark Eisele, CNOG President Sr. Homero García de la Llata, and CCA President Nathan Phinney.
