Talks on renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) continued for the third straight week last week, as representatives from the U.S., Canada and Mexico pushed to finalize an updated deal.
It’s difficult for any business to remain profitable for nearly 140 years, but brothers Kent and Barry Holden, of Holden Farms in Northfield, Minn., run one of the largest pork operations in the country.
In yet another surprise announcement, the administration has put tariffs on steel and aluminum from some of its most important trading partners. As a result, Mexico is threatening to retaliate against U.S. pork.
It’s obvious the five members of the fifth generation at Holden Farms are comfortable with one another, and their father-owners. A friendly camaraderie permeates the meeting room where they gather to share ideas.
