Colorado Farm Bureau President ..., 1 Oct 2014 [cached]
Colorado Farm Bureau President Don Shawcroft, a member of the American Farm Bureau Federation board of directors, told the House Small Business Subcommittee on Agriculture, Energy and Trade that Farm Bureau supports increased market access for agriculture.
A major challenge presented in the current round of negotiations with Europe is not just the traditional tariff issues, but the even greater obstacles presented by technical barriers to enhanced trade.
"The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership negotiations between the U.S. and the European Union must deal with the many substantive issues that impede U.S.-EU agricultural trade," Shawcroft said.
Trade-related issues of concern to agriculture include long-standing barriers against conventionally raised U.S. beef, ongoing restrictions against U.S. poultry and pork and actions that limit U.S. exports of farm goods produced using biotechnology.
Further, "It is imperative that TTIP be a high-standard trade agreement that covers all significant barriers in a single, comprehensive agreement," Shawcroft said.
Scientific standards are the only basis for resolving these issues, Shawcroft explained.
In describing how imposing non-tariff trade barriers can cause economic harm to U.S. agriculture, Shawcroft pointed to Mexico's past use of sanitary- phytosanitary measures to block the importation of U.S. potatoes.
The recent addition of Japan as a full participant in the TPP talks enhances the significance of the negotiations and makes the agreement much more encompassing of North American goals for agricultural trade, Shawcroft said.
"As a member of the World Trade Organization, U.S. agriculture must continue to seek a commercially meaningful outcome through expanded market access from WTO negotiations," Shawcroft said.

Colorado Farm Bureau President ..., 10 Sept 2014 [cached]
Colorado Farm Bureau President Don Shawcroft told the House Committee on Agriculture that the new directive would empower the Forest Service to take part ownership of private citizens' water rights as a regular part of rights renewal process. Such seizures are unnecessary because western states have developed systems to fairly appropriate their often scarce water resources through statute and years of well-established case law, Shawcroft said.
Farm Bureau urged Congress to stop the directive. "Water is the lifeblood for all farm and ranch operations," Shawcroft said.
