The International Livestock Identification Association’s 70th Annual Conference is being hosted by the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association at the Ramada Plaza Suites in Fargo this week.
Colin Woodall, Vice President, Government Affairs for National Cattlemen’s Beef Association in Washington, DC, gave producers an update on what’s happening on Capitol Hill — or in the case of the TransPacific Partnership trade deal – what’s not happening.
We spoke with him on the sidelines of the conference.
It seems that the election season has given “trade deals” a black eye on the campaign trail.
The Republican convention is underway with Donald Trump taking center stage – and the Democrats are gearing up for their convention to formally put Hillary Clinton on the November 8th ballot. We asked Woodall about what he’s heard about Tom Vilsack being a potential Vice President pick for Hillary Clinton.
The main point Woodall stressed to the cattle producers at the conference — head to the polls on November 8th and vote.
