A trade mission to Russia that was meant to center on beef genetics has been cancelled because of uncertainties in the Russian market.
State agriculture officials had signed up beef producers and industry representatives to make the trip, which was planned for October.
Ty Eschenbaum with the state's Agriculture Department says officials will consider a trip in 2015.
Eschenbaum says Russian cattle breeders like the fact that cattle from the Northern Plains are raised in a climate similar to their own.
