Ag industry reacts as China drops U.S. poultry ban

Posted: Updated:

It will buy American chicken products once again, a silver lining for poultry groups, amid tariff wars and market uncertainty.

As African Swine Fever lowers hog herds and raises pork prices, experts say poultry producers can capitalize on the growing demand for alternative protein in China.

Groups hope the news sets the stage for other deals to get done. Although the latest news clears another hurdle for U.S. farm exports, ag groups promise to push for more progress in a U.S. China agreement.
