Free trade deal opposed because of NZ dairy exports

American lobbyists are trying to block a free trade agreement with New Zealand because of the effect it could have on US dairy producers.

In Wisconsin, Democrat congressional candidate Roger Kittelson is making the issue one of his main platforms.

He says dairy imports from New Zealand would threaten the local industry because it could not compete.
