Dairy Industry Organizes Effort to “Call the President”

 |  By: Anna-Lisa Laca

The North American Free Trade Agreement is important all of agriculture. Some analysts believe the dairy industry is one sector of agriculture with the most to lose if the U.S. were to leave the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Farmers aren’t sure the White House fully understands the need for the agreement and are hoping to change that.

According to Dairy Farmers of America, the dairy industry has organized an effort to let President Trump know how important NAFTA is to farmers’ bottom line and to encourage his administration to “mend it,” not “end it.”

“This industry effort includes a grassroots White House call-in day tomorrow, Wednesday, December 6, between 1–2 p.m. EST. If lines shut down due to excessive calls, you are encouraged to call again between 3–4 p.m. EST. Leave a constituent comment for the president by calling 202-456-1111,” DFA’s legislative alert said on Tuesday.
