ST. PAUL — “Minnesota Farm Bureau is pleased to see the lifting of steel and aluminum tariffs on Mexican and Canadian imports and the elimination of retaliatory tariffs on U.S. agricultural products by Mexico and Canada,” said Minnesota Farm Bureau (MFB) President Kevin Paap. “In this time of financial and emotional challenges, farmers and ranchers needed good news, and this critical step in ratifying the USMCA by Congress, in addition to the announcement of full access to the Japanese market for Minnesota beef farmers, was a needed step forward.”
“Minnesota Farm Bureau will continue to work to defend and expand trade opportunities,” said MFB President Kevin Paap. “We look forward to working with the Administration and members of the Congressional delegation to continue to improve the markets for Minnesota farmers and ranchers.”
