The US-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) Brings Relief to the Nation’s Dairy Industry

In May 2019, the United States announced an agreement with Canada and Mexico to remove all tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from those countries and for the removal of all tariffs on American goods including dairy products, bringing much needed relief to the US Dairy Industry.

The Dairy Industry and CEO Tom Vilsack of the US Dairy Export Council, has praised the Trump administration as well as Mexico and Canada for their collective efforts on getting this deal done.  With this agreement in place, it will ensure that US, Mexico and Canada will maintain and grow their respective markets in this time of uncertainty with our agricultural economy.

The USMCA also includes important improvements that will expand exports of US Dairy products to Mexico and Canada.

Now we need Congress to ratify this agreement sooner than later.
