Canada and Mexico are two of the biggest trade markets for Nebraska farmers. Governor Ricketts said after the rough year our farmers have had, a trade agreement like this could make a world of difference.

"They buy over a billions dollars worth of products from us each every year," Gov. Ricketts said. "So you can see these are top markets for us. That's why it's so important that we get USMCA ratified."

The Governor asked the crowd to reach out to their Nebraska congressmen and share how important this agreement would be to them.
