U.S.-China Agreement Expands Opportunities for U.S. Beef

Taylor Hillman Beef

China reopened to U.S. beef in 2017, but technical restrictions kept the cost of producing and processing China-eligible beef very high and made it difficult for the United States to gain market share. But according to a story from U.S. Meat Export Federation’s (USMEF) Joe Schuele, the U.S.-China “Phase One” trade agreement signed last week will ease or eliminate many of these restrictions and expand opportunities for the U.S. beef industry.
