Dan Halstrom, USMEF senior vice president of marketing and communications, spoke Wednesday at the Illinois Farm Bureau Commodities Conference in Normal, Illinois. Halstrom provided attendees with an overview of USMEF’s role in expanding demand for U.S. beef, pork and lamb in international markets, with a particular focus on the return these efforts deliver for producers.

“The Commodities Conference is a great opportunity to communicate with producers about the growing success of red meat exports in the global marketplace, but also about the challenges we face in today’s very competitive environment,” Halstrom said. “It is well-attended by producers from all sectors of Illinois agriculture, which have been very supportive of USMEF.”

In addition to the Illinois Farm Bureau, USMEF member organizations from the state include the Illinois Beef Association, Illinois Corn Marketing Board, Illinois Pork Producers Association and Illinois Soybean Association.
