Walter Schweitzer Takes Over the Reigns at Montana Farmers Union

(40 minutes) Does the USMCA trade agreement really offer any new benefits to Montana? Did Montana ag producers irredeemably lose market share because the U.S. stepped back from TPP in favor of new unilateral trade agreements, such as was recently negotiated with Japan and South Korea? What direction will Walter Schweitzer, the newly-elected President of the Montana Farmers Union, take the 104 year-old organization?

Schweitzer, elected last week at the MFU annual convention in Great Falls, shared his thoughts on trade, Country of Origin labeling, the tough Montana “summer” harvest, cattle markets, the proposed CSKT Water Compact and more.
