Buyers Team Tours U.S. beef industry
A USMEF ASEAN buyers team toured Nebraska and Iowa earlier this month and met USMEF members at a “Meet the Buyers” luncheon in Des Moines at the Hilton Garden Inn on May 16. The agenda was designed to educate the team about all aspects of the U.S. beef industry, especially food safety and the inspection system, and to promote value cuts.
