23 May 2017

US - The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association has applauded the confirmation of Governor Terry Branstad as Ambassador to China, saying that he is the "ideal person to help facilitate the US beef industry’s return to the Chinese market."

NCBA President Craig Uden released a statement saying: "As the six-term governor of a state with more than $10 billion in annual agricultural exports, Terry Branstad is an ideal person to help facilitate the US beef industry’s return to the Chinese market for the first time in 13-plus years.

"Ambassador Branstad has said that he intends to serve American-produced beef at the US embassy in Beijing, and America’s cattle producers look forward to working with him to make that a reality as soon as possible."

In addition, Mike Cline, president of the Iowa Cattlemen's Association, said: "Ambassador Branstad has been a great friend to Iowa cattlemen and the agriculture industry as Governor of Iowa.

"He has shown a great commitment to the growth of beef and other agricultural exports, and we look forward to the work he will do on behalf of all Americans in his new capacity as Ambassador to China."
