Government and meat industry officials from Denmark visits U.S. Meat Export Federation (USMEF) headquarters in Denver and USDA staff in Washington, D.C., to gain a better understanding of U.S. red meat production.

A team of government and meat industry officials from Denmark recently visited U.S. Meat Export Federation (USMEF) headquarters in Denver and met with USDA staff in Washington, D.C., to gain a better understanding of American red meat production and how agribusiness is conducted in the U.S.

The Danish delegation, which was led by the Ministry for Agriculture and Environment’s chief veterinary officer, also toured a Colorado cattle ranch and feedlot, the Cargill beef plant in Fort Morgan, Colorado, and the Smithfield Foods pork plant in Tarheel, North Carolina.

USMEF Technical Services Manager Cheyenne McEndaffer offers more details on the objectives of the team’s visit and explains that the U.S. and Danish meat industries see several issues of common interest on which they can work together – such as market access for specific products and administration of the European Union’s high-quality duty-free beef quota, under which most U.S. beef entering the EU is imported.
