Monday the United States imposed additional sanctions against Russia for failing to live up to its agreement to defuse the crisis in Ukraine.  South Dakota Pork Council President Lester Moeller of Miller says prior to the sanctions trade with Russia was not going well as they’ve banned some U.S. pork , that that has been given the additive ractopamine.

Moeller says Russia has kept some U.S. pork out for protectionist reasons but the new and additional sanctions won’t help improve that situation.

Moeller says anytime sanctions or political moves are made it’s the producers who usually are hurt the most.
