NBA lobbies for beef exports

THE National Beef Association (NBA) plans to lobby for a change in the European Union (EU) rules on abattoirs to ease the difficulties on exporters.

It will try to persuade the EU to relax its requirement for abattoirs dedicated totally to export which it regards as onerous and impractical.

The NBA will suggest that facilities should be dedicated on a daily basis to the export trade.
