COOL, PED Virus & Grain Logistics Top Priorities for North American Ag Legislators

Agricultural legislators from Canada, the U.S. and Mexico met in Chicago last week for the Tri-National Accord — an annual meeting of provincial, state and national delegates to discuss agricultural trade issues.

U.S. country of origin labeling (COOL), the impact of PED virus on North American hog production and challenges with grain logistics were three of the priorities discussed, as Manitoba Agriculture Minister Ron Kostyshyn (who also served as co-chair of the Canadian delegation) explains to Kelvin Heppner in the video below.

Along with Kostyshyn, the Canadian delegation also included agriculture ministers from Saskatchewan, Ontario, PEI and the deputy ag minister from Alberta, as well as federal Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz.
