Farm and Ranch Management Webinar

12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Elliott Dennis,
With Erin Borror, Economist, U.S. Meat Export Federation, and Elliott Dennis, Assistant Professor of Livestock Marketing, University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Exports account for a significant share of U.S. pork and beef production, especially for certain cuts, adding value to every animal produced. The U.S. Meat Export Federation is working to build a strong demand for U.S. high quality, high value beef and pork, highlighting sustainability and health as well as quality, to proactively address consumer questions in the (mis)Information age. The webinar will cover the current global demand for red meat, how U.S. beef and pork exports have been performing and how exports are related to livestock markets and meat prices.

Erin Borror joined USMEF in July 2006 after receiving her M.S. in Agricultural Economist at Texas A&M University. She received her B.S. in Agribusiness at California Polytechnic State University. She serves as char of the Economics Committee for the International Meat Secretariat.
