PITTSVILLE Wis. (WAOW) — For Brad Kremer, farming is his life.

“Me and my wife have worked for over 25 years two jobs i mean hard jobs my wife tore her rotator cuff last year we really work our butts of,f” says Kremer.

Kremer and so many others livelihood in Central Wisconsin is working on the field.

“We are not the only ones growing soybeans in the world, we are not the only ones milking cows or growing corn,” says Kremer.

However farmers in Central Wisconsin are facing tough times and it might only get worse. Wisconsin farmers are bracing for additional Chinese tariffs on U.S. products. Kremer says “if you’re driving down the road and see a field of soybeans, every third row goes to China.”

“Farmers clearly need trade deals not trade wars,” says US Senator Tammy Baldwin.

However, the President says he thinks the trade war will work out well.

“I think its going to turn out extremely well we are in a very strong position we are the piggy bank that everybody likes to take advantage of or take from and we can’t let that happen anymore,” says President Donald Trump.

While Kremer says he understands things like this take time, he hopes a deal is reached soon.
