USMEF Statement on Approval of 2018 Farm Bill

With President Trump signing the 2018 Farm Bill, U.S. Meat Export Federation (USMEF) President and CEO Dan Halstrom issued the following statement:

USMEF thanks President Trump for approving the new Farm Bill and the senators and representatives who supported this legislation.

The Farm Bill contains many provisions that are critical to the success and competitiveness of American agriculture. One important aspect of the bill is its continued support for international promotion of U.S. agricultural products, as the bill maintains funding for the USDA Market Access Program and the USDA Foreign Market Development Program. Support from these programs is an important tool for expanding global demand for U.S. pork, beef and lamb, as well as many other U.S. products.
