Steve Nelson on U.S., China trade negotiations

Steve Nelson, President of Nebraska Farm Bureau

Nelson expresses hope for long-term trade agreement

 “Last night’s announcement that China will begin immediately to purchase more agricultural products from the United States, is welcome news to Nebraska farmers and ranchers.”

“It’s our hope that both countries will continue to work to get a long-term trade agreement in place in the next 90-days to avoid further escalation of retaliatory tariffs that have harmed U.S. agriculture.”

The Nebraska Farm Bureau is a grassroots, state-wide organization dedicated to supporting farm and ranch families and working for the benefit of all Nebraskans through a wide variety of educational, service and advocacy efforts. More than 61,000 families across Nebraska are Farm Bureau members, working together to achieve rural and urban prosperity as agriculture is a key fuel to Nebraska’s economy.
