Nebraska is a national leader in the production and export of red meat and poultry. No other state has the combination of factors that allows Nebraska to excel in producing high quality meats available for export all over the globe. Nebraska’s meat exports have been growing by leaps and bounds in recent years and are a significant portion of our state’s economy. Demand is exploding in Asia and Europe and Nebraska has gained a reputation worldwide as a first-class provider of meat.
The Nebraska Agricultural Trade Office brings international buyers and policymakers to Nebraska to give them a firsthand look at how our quality meats are produced. Our staff also organizes periodic trade missions for Nebraska’s producers to make international contacts for their export endeavors. NDA is a member of the U.S. Meat Export Federation (USMEF), which is a trade association in the meat and livestock industry. They represent producers of beef, veal, pork, lamb, and feed grains, as well as farm organizations and supply and service organizations.
