WASHINGTON, DC – Last night, Congressman Tim Huelskamp (R-Kansas) was Ambassador Kenichiro Sasae’s guest at the residence of the Ambassador of Japan. Japan recently raised the age cap on its beef imports from 20 months of age to 30 months. The U.S. Meat Export Federation projects this change will increase U.S. beef exports to Japan by 45% in 2013. Congressman Huelskamp issued the following statement:

“I’m especially grateful more Kansas beef will now be served on the dinner tables of Japanese citizens. I’m a farmer from Western Kansas who represents the nation’s most prominent beef producing congressional district. I thanked Ambassador Sasae for his government’s decision to open the Japanese market to more Kansas beef. We agreed to continue working together to improve our trans-Pacific partnership.”
