U.S. wheat farmers, U.S. Wheat Associates, the National
Association of Wheat Growers, and the North American Millers’ Association have partnered with the U.S. international food assistance program for 70 years.

**U.S. Representative Dusty Johnson introduced the Beef Origin Labeling Accountability Act to bring clarity and to reinstate mandatory country of origin labeling for beef products.
The South Dakota Republican says consumers don’t know where their beef comes from, adding, U.S. producers raise better beef, and aren’t getting credit for it.
The act will direct the Trade Representative and Ag Secretary to work together to determine a process for reinstating Mandatory Labeling.
