The 133rd annual Wool Growers Convention took place Friday where senator Steve Daines spoke to growers about the continued importance of agriculture to Montana.
Senator Daines said agriculture in Montana is important because it’s the largest economic driver, as well as the foundation of Montana values.
He also said it’s important that Montana plays a role overseas to grow our production and grow our herds.
“We need to have access overseas in these growing markets, particularly in Asia,” Daines said. “And I’m fighting for that everyday to ensure we can break down some of those barriers to ensure we get Montana produced agriculture products on the plates over in Asia and in Europe.”
Daines said he recently took a trip to China to push hard on the leaders of China to remove the ban on US beef imports.
