A dairy farmer cooperative would like to see Washington get more active in negotiating trade deals.  Mykel Wedig with Edge Dairy Farmers Cooperative tells Brownfield the first year of the Biden Administration hasn’t made any progress on trade. “We’re a little bit disappointed to not see anything yet but I would say that our number one priority right now is getting that ag negotiator in place. It will be difficult to negotiate any effective agreements for ag without this and until this happens.”

Wedig says Edge is hopeful there will be a hearing for nominee Elaine Trevino early in the new year.
