Canadian Cattlemen’s Association president Dan Darling and his U.S. and Mexican counterparts have issued a joint letter calling on governments of the three nations to keep the terms of the North American Free Trade Agreement affecting beef producers.

The CCA, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, and Confederación Nacional de Organizaciones Ganaderas say the trade agreement properly reflects the true integrated nature of the North American beef cattle industry.

The U.S. takes 70 per cent of Canadian beef and cattle exports and nearly all of our live cattle exports — 270,000 tonnes of beef and 764,000 head of live cattle last year.
