Statement by Mark McHargue, President, Regarding Establishing a Dairy Dispute Settlement Panel under USMCA

LINCOLN, NEB. – “Nebraska Farm Bureau is pleased to see the announcement from United States Trade Representative (USTR) Ambassador Katherine Tai that the United States has established a dispute settlement panel under United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) to ensure Canada follows through with their dairy import obligations. The provisions giving more Canadian access to U.S. dairy producers was one of the most significant wins in the USMCA. Trade agreements only work if their provisions are enforced, and this move by Ambassador Tai continues to show the world the U.S. expects our trading partners to uphold their commitments.”

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.
