Finstad leads meeting on agricultural trade

U.S. Rep. Brad Finstad, chairman of the House Agriculture Subcommittee on Nutrition, Foreign Agriculture, and Horticulture, led a hearing Thursday on stakeholder perspectives on agricultural trade.

Said Finstad, who represents Minnesota’s First Congressional District: “It is imperative the trade programs in Title III work efficiently and can be fully utilized by our producers. So as we continue to gather information from stakeholders ahead of the next farm bill, we need to have a clear picture of the trading economy our producers are engaged with — day in and day out.”

Finstad asked witnesses about the potential impact of foreign animal diseases, like African Swine Fever, on the nation’s food supply, as well as what said are Mexico’s unjust attempt to ban U.S. genetically modified corn, going against the U,S,-Mexico-Canada Agreement and putting $5 billion worth of U.S. exports at risk.
