Default US pig farmers, asked to be 'good patriots,' brace for new round of pork tariffs from



Gotta take one fer the wanna be gipper.

<The Mexican and Chinese markets have been seen as especially important to the U.S. pork producers, because they have purchased product that Americans typically don't buy, including raw hams and "variety meats" like tongue, ears, snout, and heart.>

<However, it's no surprise that Mexico has been looking to other global suppliers for pork, such as Brazil, Chile and the European Union. The country has other agricultural product concerns amid the North American Free Trade Agreement renegotiation talks. Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, the president-elect of Mexico, so has been advocating the country reduce its dependence on U.S. farm imports.>

<In 2017, the average value of a hog was $147 and of that value almost $54 of the total value was driven by exports, according to Monroe. He said about 550,000 jobs are tired to the pork sector and 110,000 of them are directly tried to exports.>

<David Maloni, executive vice president of analytics for ArrowStream, a Chicago-based foodservice supply chain technology company, said he believes the tariffs are short-term and "more tactical" in nature, useful in the broader context of forcing key countries to negotiate on trade.>

<However, producers like Maschhoff aren't looking for farm subsidies from the federal government. He told CNBC that the current programs are not for pork and beef producers, but focused mostly on dairy and grains.>

<"We want to compete and be able to sell abroad and make sure our government knocks down trade barriers," he said. "All we've accomplished is getting more trade barriers. We are the casualty and predicted it from day one.">
