The U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Agriculture is currently conducting a series of subcommittee hearings in preparation for the next farm bill. Last week the Subcommittee on Livestock and Foreign Agriculture held a hearing titled, The Next Farm Bill: International Market Development. The primary focus of the hearing was to examine the benefits derived from the USDA Market Access Program (MAP) and Foreign Market Development (FMD) Program.

U.S. Meat Export Federation (USMEF) President and CEO Philip Seng was invited to testify on the important roles MAP and FMD funding play in expanding global demand for U.S. red meat.
