NMPF Welcomes Assistance to Dairy Farmers Suffering from Retaliatory Tariffs

The new tariff mitigation program announced Tuesday by the Trump Administration should provide badly needed economic assistance to dairy farmers facing significant financial losses, the National Milk Producers Federation said today.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced today that it is preparing a $12 billion economic assistance program designed to help dairy farmers and other agricultural producers suffering from the effects of retaliatory tariffs imposed by Mexico, China and other key trading partners.

NMPF’s Chris Galen, SVP of Communications, tells us more on today’s Dairy Radio Now.
