The National Turkey Federation released a statement today following passage of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) in the House of Representatives:

“Bipartisan passage of the USMCA in the House brings us one step closer to ratification and the reinforcement of two crucial foreign markets for U.S. turkey products. Efforts by President Trump, Ambassador Lighthizer, Secretary Perdue and congressional leaders have made this long-standing goal a possibility, but we’re not there yet. It is time for the Senate to see the USMCA through and support America’s turkey farmers and processors by solidifying these important trade relationships with Mexico – the turkey industry’s largest export partner – and Canada. We hope to see quick action on this major priority for American agriculture in the new year.”
