Beef Roundtable: What to expect from the Trump administration
Two beef industry guests share a lifetime of on-the-ground involvement in the Washington D.C. arena in the latest Beef Roundtable. Part one of a four-part series.
The United States, indeed the whole world, wasn’t quite sure what to expect when Donald Trump took the oath of office of perhaps the most powerful nation in the world. Now, with Trump’s first few months in office behind him, the picture is becoming a little clearer.
To help analyze that question, our two guests share a lifetime of on-the-ground involvement in the Washington D.C. arena.
Our first guest is Steve Dittmer, who has nearly 30 years’ experience in management, marketing, and communications in the beef industry. Currently, Steve is the executive vice president of the Agribusiness Freedom Foundation, which provides information and analysis for food chain participants
Our second guest is Jay Truitt, a longtime Washington insider and principal in the organization Policy Solutions; Motley, Scher, Truitt, a bipartisan government relations and public affairs firm. Jay has served as vice president of government affairs for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association and CEO and executive vice president of the Missouri Cattlemen’s Association and the Missouri’s Cattlemen Foundation.
