Statement to be attributed to Ohio Farm Bureau president Frank Burkett III upon approval of the United States-Canada-Mexico-Agreement by the U.S. House of Representatives.

“USMCA solidifies the strong trade relationship that the U.S. has built with Mexico and Canada, especially when it comes to agricultural commodities. We appreciate President Trump and the U.S. House for their efforts in letting the world know that the U.S. is open for business and for giving farmers more market certainty they need to help them succeed. We now ask that the U.S. Senate move forward quickly on the finalization of USMCA.”  

This statement is for use by journalists. Questions should be directed to Ty Higgins, 614-246-8231.

Through its policies it brings together people in the agricultural community and invests in building vibrant communities that support agriculture.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington, D.C.

If you have issues with local planning or have legal questions, someone at the Farm Bureau has the answer for you, or they’ll connect you with someone who does.

We go to a lot of Farm Bureau events, and there’s a lot of camaraderie built because you’re meeting with people who have similar interests and goals.
