Ag Secretary welcomes USMCA trade deal

Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue is welcoming a breakthrough on the US-MCA deal with two of the country's most important agricultural markets. Stephanie Ho reports from Washington:

American Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall urged members of Congress to swiftly approve the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement. 

President Duvall said that Agriculture is at a critical crossroads with the downturn in commodity prices, losses from natural disasters and the trade war.  He adds that this is an opportunity for Congress not only to help U.S. farmers and ranchers turn the corner on trade but also show that Washington can still get things done on a bipartisan basis.

Moving on…

There are few surprises in the USDA's new round of crop reports. In fact, surprises are pretty much missing this month. (Gary Crawford)

The U.S.-China trade deal is fast approaching a December 15th deadline. Stephanie Ho
