Farm Bureau says trade war has cost Nebraska up to $1 billion

Nebraska farmers and ranchers lost big in the trade wars and so did the state in general, according to a study released by the Nebraska Farm Bureau.
Farm Bureau Economist Jay Rempe says trade disputes cost the state’s producers between 700-Million and 1(B)Billion dollars, with ripple effects for Nebraska’s state economy. . .

 

The Farm Bureau proposes six steps to improve trade and improve Nebraska agriculture’s bottom line, including ratification of the new trade deal with Canada and Mexico, elimination of Trump Administration-imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum, and a multi-national approach to address trade abuses by China.
