Presidential Candidates Will Visit Siouxland Thursday and Friday
President Donald Trump signed the first phase of a new trade deal with China this morning.
Part of the agreement includes China buying more soybeans and other U.S. farm products.
Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds and South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem were by Trump’s side in Washington, D.C.
Noem mentioned the potential positive impact for farmers during her “State of the State” speech yesterday in Pierre.
“I have a deep appreciation for the President for his commitment and leadership to mend this U.S. China Trade Agreement.”
Two Siouxland area farmers also joined Noem in Washington; Jerry Schmitz is a soybean farmer from Vermillion and Craig Anderson raises hogs in nearby Centerville.
