On July 17, Vice President Mike Pence conducted a USMCA round table discussion at Morning Star Dairy in Onalaska. WFBF members Todd Servais and state Representative Tony Kurtz joined five other farmers in talking with the Vice President.
“It was very encouraging to talk to Vice President Pence about continuing our fifth-generation dairy farm by improving trade and infrastructure to better move our products,” said La Crosse County Farm Bureau member Todd Servais.
Serving on the panel were Todd Servais, John and Barbara Schaller, Karla Dummer, Patrick McHugh, state Representative Tony Kurtz and Cameron Schaller.
The panel addressed the need for fair trade for American farmers to compete in the global economy, the impact of tariffs on commodity markets and improving markets amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
Prior to the USMCA round table event, Vice President Pence spoke at Ripon college.
