Trade war continues assault on farmers

Farmers in Door and Kewaunee Counties were dealt another blow earlier this week when China announced it was canceling all purchases of agriculture products from the United States. The news came as the United States placed a 10 percent tariff on about $300 billion worth of Chinese goods according to Modern Farmer. Rick Adamski, who represents Door and Kewaunee Counties in the Wisconsin Farmers Union, believes the latest blow is politically motivated since well over 70 percent of farmers said they supported President Donald Trump in a recent Farm Pulse Survey. Adamski says farmers are not in a healthy condition right now.

According to the U.S.-China Business Council, $250 million in oilseeds like soybeans and grains were exported to China from Wisconsin. Adamski says the Wisconsin Farmers Union is working towards addressing supply management so a better return on their investment is available.
