Statement by Steve Nelson, President, Regarding President Trump Signing USMCA Trade Deal into Law
LINCOLN, NEB. – “Today American agriculture is able to mark yet another item off the ‘to-do’ list when it comes to international trade. We thank President Trump for signing the United States – Mexico – Canada Agreement (USMCA) legislation authorizing implementation of this major trade deal.
USMCA will allow our farm and ranch families to maintain market access for Nebraska beef, pork, corn, and soybeans with two of our largest trading partners, as well as open new doors for the sale of Nebraska wheat, poultry, and dairy products. With the U.S. and Mexico having authorized the deal, we look forward to our Canadian neighbors taking the final steps for approval so we can begin to take advantage of this updated 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 58,000 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.
