New York Farm Bureau Statement on USMCA Trade Deal

“The recent announcement regarding the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement is positive news for New York farmers. While New York Farm Bureau is still reviewing the details of the agreement, we believe this is a step in the right direction for New York agriculture, including the state's dairy farms. We are hopeful that the USMCA will ensure continued market access as well as increase trade with both Canada and Mexico. NYFB is also encouraged by language that will eliminate Canada’s Class 7 dairy pricing program as well as increase access to Canada’s dairy market. Canada and Mexico are both important trading partners for New York farmers, and NYFB will continue to monitor the timely signage and implementation of the Agreement.”
