Japan Eliminating Restrictions on U.S. Beef Imports

Nebraska Farm Bureau President Steve Nelson released this statement:

Today is a great day for Nebraska beef producers and Nebraska agriculture! The elimination of Japan’s long-held age restrictions on American beef imports was long overdue. For the first time in 15 years, Nebraska beef producers will have full access to the Japanese market. Japan is the fourth largest consumer of Nebraska agricultural products and far and away the largest purchaser of Nebraska beef. Today’s action will only strengthen our relationship and create greater opportunities to move Nebraska beef products into Japan. We hope this is just the first of more good news to come in securing a much needed trade deal with Japan that ensures U.S. and Nebraska beef producers are competing on a level playing field with our competitors from around the world.”
