SD Trade Mission To Russia Might Be Postponed

SD Trade Mission To Russia Might Be Postponed

South Dakota's Agriculture Department is analyzing whether to postpone a trade mission to Russia that was scheduled for October.

Russia banned most food imports from the West on Thursday in retaliation for sanctions over Ukraine.

The state Agriculture Department has made two trade missions to Russia in recent years, mainly to arrange the importation of registered, purebred American beef cattle. Ty Eschenbaum with the department says officials haven't decided whether to continue with the planned October trade mission.

South Dakota Beef Industry Council President Ron Frederick says Russia stopped buying beef from the U.S. some time ago because of its concerns about an additive in American cattle feed. He says he isn't sure how the ban will impact Russia's importation of U.S. livestock.
