Audio: Missouri farmer testifies before U.S. House subcommittee about struggles from trade war

Trade War

A Missouri farmer and American Soybean Association board member has told a U.S. House subcommittee he and other farmers are hurting because of the ongoing trade war with China.

Ronnie Russell says as late as April, farmers were hopeful an end to the feud was at hand.



Russell says Congress should do everything it can to approve the trade agreement with Mexico and Canada.  Russell has testified before a U.S. House subcommittee that he and other farmers are suffering and the trade war with China should be over.



Russell, who is also an American Soybean Association board member, farms in Ray County.
