Farm Bureau President Believes Agriculture in Better Position to Negotiate with Trump in White House

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 12:29:43 CST

Farm Bureau President Believes Agriculture in Better Position to Negotiate with Trump in White House During the National Association of Farm Broadcasters Convention in Kansas City this week, Farm Director Ron Hays caught up with agricultural community leader Zippy Duvall, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation, to get his thoughts on moving industry business forward, post-election.

“We have bright spots in this new administration and we have some challenges in this new administration. But we’re ready for that,” Duvall said. “President-Elect Trump speaks our language when it come sot rules and regulation. Looking forward to have some reform there and bring some common sense.”

Duvall says when it comes to issues such as the Waters of the US rule and getting it permanently stayed, the situation looks optimistic under a Trump-led government. However, issues such as the Trans Pacific Partnership, don’t look as good.

“He doesn’t believe in Trans Pacific Partnership, but he does believe in trade,” Duvall said. “We know how important trade is to agriculture and we will work with him to make sure that agriculture is a winner.”

Farm labor and immigration policy is also a major issue that AFBF will be discussing with Trump, along with the 2018 Farm Bill when talks begin on it, says Duvall. Although his organization’s policy does not line up on every issue with Trump, Duvall remains optimistic about future talks affirming that in pre-election discussions with the Trump team, he was assured that agriculture would have a seat at the table when those discussions are had.

“There’s some outstanding agricultural people on his ag team, including some great Farm Bureau people,” Duvall said. “I’m real encouraged by that.”
