Two of the world’s closest allies, the United States and Canada, couldn’t be more apart on what’s right for their dairy industries with USMCA. The Canadian dairy industry does not like the potential agreement.
Sonny Perdue, as U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, may be the most aggressive enforcer of President Donald Trump’s pro-business and deregulatory agenda that the fewest Americans, outside agriculture, have ever heard of.
