Sandhusker, to answer your question re. advertising U.S. beef abroad.....we don't export imported beef, so the checkoff is not being selective when using a logo refering to the U.S. As in U.S. Meat Export Federation, which coordinates the foreign promotion and information efforts for the checkoff.
MRJ, I don't think I am following your here. Would you please explain the part about not exporting imported beef? Thanks.
