UK Ag Secretary to Nudge Vilsack on Beef, Lamb
April 22, 2016

Elizabeth Truss, the United Kingdom's secretary of state for food, rural affairs and agriculture, met with Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack in Washington this week and told Morning Agriculture reporter that she planned to press him on trade issues. Truss said she'd be asking Vilsack about having USDA inspectors visit British beef and lamb producers in order to reopen the United States to imports of those products. British beef and lamb have been banned from the U.S. since 1989 over concerns about mad cow disease.
