On August 29, SBE Council president & CEO Karen Kerrigan joined an hour-long panel on Cavuto’s Coast-to-Coast with Neil Cavuto. The panel turned to the issue of trade, where Iowa Agriculture Secretary Mike Naig discussed the growing frustration of farmers and the agriculture community with increases in tariffs and the trade war with China. Kerrigan observed that “The trade issue is critical. Farmers, businesses want to trade. They want access to global markets to grow and expand.” What they don’t want, she said, is the government acting as middleman on specific purchases (like on soybeans, for example) and then one side backing out. It causes too much uncertainty. That is why trade frameworks are important – so that people can trade with people.
