American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall commented today on the Senate confirmation of Doug McKalip to serve as Chief Agricultural Negotiator at the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative.
“The American Farm Bureau Federation is pleased that, after several months of delay, Doug McKalip was finally confirmed as chief agricultural negotiator for USTR. Doug has proven he is more than qualified for the position with more than three decades of agricultural experience.
“There is much work to be done. Current disagreements over exports to Mexico and potential new trade relationships with the European Union and Great Britain require the leadership Doug brings to the position. We look forward to working with him to create more opportunities for America’s farmers and ranchers to feed families around the globe.”
