Farm Bureau Board Endorses USMCA Agreement

Newsroom / December 12, 2018

The board of directors of the American Farm Bureau Federation today recommended swift passage of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement.

Exports to Canada and Mexico under USMCA’s predecessor, the North American Free Trade Agreement, increased from $8.9 billion to $39 billion yearly. The USMCA would retain those gains while adding improvements in terms of trade for poultry, eggs, dairy and wine. AFBF, meanwhile, continues to press for a resolution to disputes over steel and aluminum imports that have led to the imposition of tariffs and other trade barriers against U.S. agricultural products.
