Agriculture organizations offered applause to lawmakers in the Senate who overwhelming supported approval of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement Thursday. 

National Corn Growers Association President Kevin Ross says the vote ensures “corn farmers will continue to have access to our largest and most reliable markets.” 

Mexico is a top destination for U.S. corn. 

Meanwhile, Bill Gordon of the American Soybean Association says the vote “means we can start 2020 on a more positive note.” 

Mexico is the number two market for whole beans, meal and oil, and Canada is a top ten buyer of meal and oil. 

U.S. Meat Export Federation CEO Dan Halstrom says the vote “bolsters our position as a reliable supplier to two leading markets that account for about one-third of all U.S. red meat exports.” 

Meat shipments to Mexico and Canada in 2019 totaled about 1.25 million metric tons valued at $3.8 billion. 

Finally, American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall says USMCA “comes at a critical time for farmers and ranchers, increasing optimism that we’ll turn the corner in 2020.”
