New York Farm Bureau Statement on USMCA Agreement

The following may be attributed to David Fisher, NYFB President:

“New York Farm Bureau is encouraged by the agreement on USMCA, and we are calling for its swift passage in Congress. The reassurance it will provide New York farmers, knowing that markets will remain open with two of our most vital trading partners, is welcome news to end what has a been a challenging year. Just last week at NYFB’s State Annual Meeting, our members passed a resolution reinforcing the need to get this trade agreement to the finish line, and we are hopeful ratification will finally happen.  The expanded opportunities for the dairy industry and continued trade free of red tape with Canada and Mexico will have long term benefits for our farms that need some certainty in the world markets.”
