'Field Notes': Meeting A Montana Loon In Mexico

Baucus Optimistic About New Trade Deal With Mexico

Aug 27, 2018

President Trump’s announcement of a trade deal with Mexico sounds like good news for Montana farmers. So says former Montana Senator Max Baucus, now co-director of an advocacy group called Farmers for Free Trade.
