As details on a Farm Bill deal are being worked out in Washington, ag producers in South Dakota are getting just over nineteen million dollars in payments to offset losses due to the trade war. Senator Mike Rounds says the US Ag Department has more money available.
There is no authorization for any future payments at the moment. Rounds says that payment is “a drop in the bucket”.
Rounds says there are several targeted trade markets.
Rounds says he is talking to Trump Administration officials almost daily in an effort to get trade talks restarted.
