Among items on the agenda is a call to withdraw from the United States Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCA) until Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) is included in the language of the agreement, and to reduce the amount of foreign beef imported into the United States and cease all efforts to reopen the U.S. to Brazilian beef.

OMAHA, N.E. (KELO) — Ranchers are urging President Donald Trump and the U.S. Department of Agriculture to take action on fair prices for cattle farmers and ranchers.

In Omaha, a protest against the administration was held this week.

At the core of the debate is a 2015 policy that allows beef to be labeled as Product of USA even if it was from the USA.

KELOLAND News will look at this policy and the trade agreements being negotiated later on KELOLAND.com.
