In an interview with NPR’s “Marketplace,” Dale Moore, American Farm Bureau's executive director of public policy, explained why farmers and ranchers are so anxious for Congress to approve the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement.

“When it’s fully implemented, we’re looking at an increase of cash receipts for farmers and ranchers of nearly $8.5 billion annually, we’re seeing about $5.3 billion increase in net exports for agriculture,” Moore said of the pact’s expected benefits for U.S. agriculture.
