LINCOLN, NEB. – “Nebraska Farm Bureau is pleased with the Senate approval of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). We especially want to thank Senators Fischer and Sasse for their work in moving this agreement forward. This is a victory for Nebraska agriculture and is more good news for farmers and ranchers who now can depend on access to these markets to sell their products.”
“This brings long-term stability to Nebraska agriculture markets with two of Nebraska’s most important trading partners. USMCA ensures Nebraska beef, pork, corn, and soybean producers will maintain essential access to Mexico and Canada markets that account for significant percentages of Nebraska’s overall international agricultural sales. USMCA also opens the door for greater purchases of Nebraska wheat, poultry, and dairy products, as well as modernizing other areas of this critical agreement.”
The Nebraska Farm Bureau is a grassroots, state-wide organization dedicated to supporting farm and ranch families and working for the benefit of all Nebraskans through a wide variety of educational, service and advocacy efforts. More than 61,000 families across Nebraska are Farm Bureau members, working together to achieve rural and urban prosperity as agriculture is a key fuel to Nebraska’s economy.
