Deb Fischer

Enjoyed sitting down with the NE Farm Bureau’s Young Farmers and Ranchers today to discuss Nebraska Ag, trade and the importance of passing USMCA. Nebraska’s ag producers are excited about the good opportunities this trade agreement will bring to our state.

Don Bacon

Had a productive meeting with the Nebraska Department of Agriculture Board. As a member of the House Ag Committee, we discussed many initiatives such as Farm Bill implementation, funding for animal disease efforts, recent flood updates, and support for USMCA.

Adrian Smith

Great meeting with the Nebraska Soybean Association last week, where we discussed trade issues including the importance of enacting USMCA.

Pete Ricketts

Nebraska’s ag community has been hit hard by flooding and blizzards, commodity prices remain much lower than they were just a few years ago, and trade uncertainty has slowed the state’s ag exports. Ratification of USMCA would give ag producers a much-needed boost.

Mike Foley
Lieutenant Governor

Passage of the USMCA trade agreement by Congress would be a BIG win for Nebraska!

Don Bacon


Farm Bureau

Members of the NEFB Young Farmers and Ranchers Committee attended a national affairs trip to Washington, D.C. They visited with Nebraska's delegation on issues important to them and their farms and ranches, including broadband expansion, trade with China, and USMCA.

Department of Agriculture

Agricultural exports to Mexico & Canada are critical for Nebraska farmers/ranchers because these countries are top export markets for this Good Life state. The US-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) will help ensure that our North American neighbors will remain top trading partners.

Chamber of Commerce

New trade deal could boost Nebraska dairy. The U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA, will have a "big impact on the U.S. and Canadian dairy market.

Cattlemen Association

Nebraska’s beef producers are fortunate, as our federal delegation in Congress understands that ratifying USMCA is critical to our state’s livestock industry.
