A change in the list of products targeted for retaliation against the European Union's ban on U.S. beef is expected to move the EU toward resolving the trade dispute, the National Cattlemen's Beef Association said.

"The uncertainty created by carousel retaliation will help generate constant pressure on all offending parties to come into compliance with World Trade Organization rulings," said NCBA President George Hall, Mustang, OK. "Without periodic changes to the retaliation list, there is little, if any, internal political pressure to settle the trade dispute."
