ASHEVILLE, N.C. – Randy Blach, CEO of CattleFax, specializes in separating signals from noise — drilling down to the data that matters — to deliver actionable insights to the meat and poultry industry stakeholders who rely on the research, analysis and other information that CattleFax provides to its subscribers.

He was a featured speaker at the Certified Angus Beef Annual Conference held in Asheville, North Carolina this week, and he took a few minutes to share with MEAT+POULTRY his observations of the trends and issues affecting the meat and poultry industry. We started our conversation with the topic of China, trade and why any old trade deal just isn’t good enough.
