Trade, BLM Move to CO, Gray Wolf, PAW Committee, CO State Fair & more

The BARN – Briggsdale, CO – At the end of July, Congress will be taking their annual August recess, with a lot of work yet to be done, including ratification of the United States Mexico Canada Trade Agreement, which would officially replace the out-dated North American Free Trade Agreement. In fact, Mexico’s Congress has already ratified USMCA and Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said they are ready to ratify it as soon as the United States Congress approves it. From the perspective of the livestock industry, getting the USMCA thru Congress would be a HUGE WIN for producers across this nation. Joining the Colorado Ag News Network and FarmCast Radio to discuss the stalled USMCA is Bill Hammerich, CEO and Secretary of the Colorado Livestock Association dicussing several topics including:


Colorado Livestock Association (CLA) was formed in 1998 through a restructuring of the then 43-year-old Colorado Cattle Feeders Association (CCFA). CLA members are cattle and sheep feeders, cow/calf producers, dairy farmers, swine operations, and industry partners. CLA works on behalf of its members in the regulatory and legislative arenas in Colorado. For more information about CLA visit
