This is a story about two ranchers in western South Dakota — Kenny Fox and Eric Jennings.
The two men have both been busy vaccinating and branding their calves, and preparing to get hay ready for winter. Fox is in his 60s; Jennings is in his 50s. Their lives, jobs and outlooks have a lot of overlap. Where the two men differ sharply, however, is on trade.
“We have people who have lost jobs because of NAFTA,” says Fox.
On the flip side, Jennings says, “We’re very happy with NAFTA. It has opened up our borders tremendously.”
