U.S. farmers reportedly hit hard by trade dispute with China

Dairy farmers express concern, as trade tensions between China and the U.S. begin to effect America’s agriculture sector. China rolled out 25 percent tariffs on a number of goods — including dairy products — in July, following the enactment of U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum goods. U.S. farmers were hit hard by the recent penalties, and have urged the administration to make de-escalating the trade dispute with china a top-priority.
