From the Ag Information Network, this is your Agribusiness Update.

**Florida Ag Commissioner Wilton Simpson and the Florida Department of Agriculture announced Sandra Moore as the 2024 Woman of the Year in Agriculture.

Moore, of Hillsborough County, is the first Woman of the

Year winner representing the tropical fish industry.

In 1992, Moore began her career in the aquatics industry at Segrest Farms and became president in 2015.

Moore will be recognized at the Woman of the Year in Agriculture luncheon during the Florida State Fair in February.


**Rabobank released its North American Agribusiness Review, a bi-monthly analysis of market conditions across North American agriculture.

The report says American consumers have proven far more resilient than expected, and they continue analyzing the drivers behind evolving consumption patterns.

Grocery sales have started to recover as food inflation has slowed and expected recovery in other sectors.

**The USDA issued a nationwide order requiring lactating dairy cows to test negative for Avian Influenza before transport.

But the North American Meat Institute is asking the USDA and Centers for Disease Control to provide safety guidance to

beef processors.

NAMI President Julie Anna Potts says they want that additional guidance to ensure USDA Inspectors and meat company workers stay protected from infection.

She adds that properly prepared beef remains safe to eat.
