Dan Nosowitz writes in Modern Farmer: “NAFTA is dead, replaced by an updated, though broadly similar, trade pact: the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA.” The new agreement includes changes in the dairy trade among the three countries. / Florida Food & Farm file photo

“NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement, has long been a punching bag for the Trump administration; during his campaign, Trump declared it ‘the worst deal the United States ever signed.’ Over the weekend, the governments of the United States, Canada, and Mexico came together to create a new, and newly named, version: the USMCA.

“Much of the new agreement has to do with the automotive industry … but there are several sticking points in agriculture that USMCA changes. Most importantly, there are changes in the dairy trade between the U.S. and Canada, one of the most fiercely debated agriculture trade issues in North America over the past decade.”
