US Beef Producers Expect Closer Collaboration with China

12 August 2019

US - US beef producers are looking forward to gaining a larger share in China, one of the fastest-growing beef markets in the world, an industry expert has said.

China is a relatively new market for US beef, but with a lot of potential to tap, Ashley Kohls, executive director of the Minnesota State Cattlemen's Association (MSCA), an organization that currently represents over 1,000 members from all segments of the beef community, told Xinhua.

US beef producers have been excited to enter the Chinese market after years of absence as a result of the detection of the mad cow disease in the United States, said Kohls, on the sidelines of Farmfest, an annual trade show held this week in Minnesota.

According to the industry expert, who is also a beef producer herself, about 12 percent of the US beef production is exported to overseas markets and Minnesota is the 10th largest beef producing state in the country.
