The U.S. Department of Agriculture says United States and Japan have agreed on new terms and conditions eliminating Japan’s restrictions on U.S. beef exports. The terms take effect immediately and allow U.S. products from all cattle, regardless of age, to enter Japan for the first time since 2003. More on the new terms and conditions will be released Monday. The expanded access could increase U.S. beef and beef product exports to Japan by up to $200 million each year.
