Tester Helps Open Up New Markets for Montana Cattle Producers

(U.S. Senate) – U.S. Senator Jon Tester today hailed a finalized trade agreement that will allow Montana cattle producers to export their beef to China.

This announcement comes after Tester met face-to-face with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer urging him to open up the Chinese market.

“This new market will provide Montana cattle ranchers with the opportunity to grow their operations and create a good living off the land,” said Tester, a third-generation Montana farmer. “I am pleased to work with the Trump Administration to ensure that Montana beef is back on the menu in China.”

Tester also sent numerous letters to top trade officials urging them to prioritize finding new markets for American beef.
