The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association is questioning the recent executive order from the White House regarding advancing biotechnology.

In a statement, they say they are disappointed that the order touches on plant-based meat.

“Unfortunately, we are extremely disappointed that this Executive Order also addresses fake meat production under the guise of food security. Supporting cell-cultured, fake meat products is the wrong approach and the administration should remain focused on supporting America’s farmers and ranchers.”

They are encouraging the Administration to support biotechnology innovations that are already happening in the cattle industry.

NCBA President Don Schiefelbein spoke with RFD-TV’s own Suzanne Alexander about their main issues with the executive order, what they would like to see from the Administration moving forward, and the important role that cattle producers play in ensuring food security.
