Farmers and Ranchers need USMCA

The following statement can be attributed to American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall: “Farmers need the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, and the sooner the better. U.S. agriculture needs strong trade agreements to access customers around the world and grow our farm economy. We are grateful for the Administration’s work to move this agreement forward. We urge Congress to finish the job and approve the USMCA quickly.

“USMCA’s predecessor, NAFTA, has boosted agricultural exports to Mexico and Canada dramatically – we’ve gone from $8.9 billion to $39 billion in the 25 years since NAFTA went into effect. That’s an obvious victory in boosting our industry’s strong trade surplus with the rest of the world."

“Steel and aluminum disputes with our North American neighbors and other trading partners will be a challenge for farmers and ranchers until those disagreements are resolved. We urge the Administration to resolve those outstanding issues as soon as possible. Farmers and ranchers need fair and open markets.”
