Bill Donald Talks About His Term as NCBA President and Canada / US Trade Relations

With over 200 days of travel as the President of NCBA, Bill Donald has been busy.  Donald has reign at the top of NCBA at a time that has been very good for Canada / United States trade relations.   With Canada shipping fat cattle south and Canada purchasing one billion dollars of US beef in 2011, the relationship appears to be very strong.

I asked Bill Donald about his term of President of NCBA and why he thinks the relationship between Canada and the US is so important to the cattle industry.
