  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   TU2021-0027

On June 25, Michael Conlon, Agricultural Counselor, and Sinem Duyum, Agricultural Specialist, attended an event at Kafkas University to celebrate the donation of 67 Beefmaster embryos to Turkey by the U.S. livestock industry. The donation took place in early 2021 and will build goodwill between the United States and Turkey as these embryos will be used to develop the foundation for a Turkish Beefmaster herd and should help increase sales of U.S. livestock genetics to Turkey.
