    BEIJING -- U.S. Dairy Export Council President and CEO Tom Vilsack met Friday with officials from Chinese government and agriculture to deliver a message that the U.S. dairy industry remains committed to this high-potential market despite the challenge of retaliatory tariffs. 

    “We want an ongoing relationship with China,” Vilsack told employees from USDEC’s China and U.S. offices before a whirlwind day of meetings. “We are in this for the long haul. We want to be here 10 years from now, 20 years from now and 50 years from now.
