Saskatchewan farmers welcome the resumption of trade talks this week with the U.S.
APAS president Todd Lewis says the trade talks with the U.S. are extremely important.
Lewis is hoping Canada can build on the trade agreement between the U.S. and Mexico.
He says the U.S. is a key customer of Canadian livestock and also purchases significant amounts of grain and other farm products.
He sees a lot of politics and posturing during the trade talks.
Lewis remains optimistic a deal can be reached despite the contentious issue of dairy tariffs in Canada.
