U.S. Dairy Industry Supports Nomination of Elaine Trevino for Chief Agricultural Negotiator

Tue, 14 Sep 2021 15:03:15 CDT

U.S. Dairy Industry Supports Nomination of Elaine Trevino for Chief Agricultural Negotiator On behalf of America’s dairy farmers, exporters and manufacturers, the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) and the U.S. Dairy Export Council (USDEC) commend President Biden’s selection of Elaine Trevino as the Chief Agricultural Negotiator for the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative.

“The role of Chief Agricultural Negotiator is essential in pursuing positive trade policy results for U.S. dairy farmers and in expanding overseas markets for dairy products,” Jim Mulhern, president and CEO of NMPF, said. “NMPF is pleased that in choosing Ms. Trevino to nominate for this position, President Biden has selected someone with the right background and clear understanding of trade’s importance to American agriculture, both of which are vital to success in this position. I’ve been fortunate to serve on the president’s Agricultural Policy Advisory Committee with Ms. Trevino and hope to see swift confirmation of her nomination by the Senate so she can commence the work that’s so key for farmers across the country.”

“U.S. dairy farmers, exporters and manufacturers have been eagerly awaiting the nomination of a Chief Agricultural Negotiator given the sizable role that trade plays in providing a home for the equivalent of more than a day’s worth of U.S. milk production each week,” Krysta Harden, president and CEO of USDEC, said. “The world needs U.S. dairy and U.S. dairy needs the world. Our industry is eager for additional market opportunities to help us create more jobs here in America as we meet that demand with our high-quality, sustainably produced products. We urge the Senate to move swiftly to confirm Ms. Trevino and look forward to working closely with her to expand markets around the world.”
