Marshall op-ed regarding trade with Cuba in High Plains Journal

Press Release

Please see Congressman Roger Marshall's op-ed in the High Plains Journal regarding trade and his recent trip to Cuba.

In the op-ed, Congressman Marshall discusses the importance to Kansas producers of opening markets in places like Cuba. He says:

"[Cuba] represents a potential top-10 wheat market, and as their tourism continues to grow, demand for higher quality protein sources will match well for our livestock producers. In a time of record low commodity prices, we cannot be arbitrarily choosing markets in which not to sell. We are only holding ourselves back."
