Sen. Baldwin discusses tariffs with western Wisconsin farmers

Senator Tammy Baldwin visited Organic Valley in Cashton, Monday, as part of her In week long series of visits across Wisconsin. 

Her time at the family farm co-op was spent talking with employees about specific dairy farm issues including organic trade and rural development.  One topic that came up early were tariffs and the effect they may be having on the industry.

Sen. Baldwin pointed out that tariffs can be used to help create a level playing field, she did take issue with the current direction of tariffs in the industry.

"Why the President deemed it necessary to impose tariffs against Canada, against Mexico, against the European Union defies all imagination.  He should be doing this in a smart way, not a haphazard way," Sen. Baldwin said.
