SDFB lauds TPP signing

Huron, S.D. (February 4, 2016) – South Dakota Farm Bureau made the following statement on the signing of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement:

“The signing of the Trans-Pacific Partnership is another step forward for this important international trade agreement. South Dakota farmers and ranchers will benefit from the TPP because it will give the United States a strong seat at the table when agreements are made and markets are opened to our agricultural products,” said Scott VanderWal, crop and cattle producer from Volga, S.D., and president of the South Dakota Farm Bureau.

VanderWal continued: “No one can match the productivity of America’s farmers and ranchers. Because we excel at the production side, we must continually attend to the consumption side of the equation. We want strong markets here at home as well, but the opportunity to trade internationally is a key component in the success of our farm and ranch families. We urge the U.S. to ratify this trade agreement as soon as possible.”
