Farmers for Free Trade is planning a 3,500 mile RV tour across 11 states to drum up support for the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement. This road trip begins in Pennsylvania April 12 and will continue during the two-week congressional recess. Organization co-founder Brian Kuehl says the tour will highlight the importance of U.S. agricultural trade with both countries. “Canada is the largest export destination for U.S. food and ag products, and Mexico is our number three trading partner,” says Kuehl. “We’re really worried about the ability for Congress to pass the USMCA. Farmers are stuck in the middle, urging to get the bill through.” Kuehl goes on to say the whistle-stop tour is designed to include a variety of events and attract a wide scope of people. On Thursday, April 25, the tour will make a stop in the Mankato and Moorhead, Minnesota areas. That will be followed by a visit to Hazelton, North Dakota on April 26.
