Trump threatens Canada over milk imports

The Canfor yard in Grande Prairie Trump threatens Canada over milk imports
Tracy Craig | 30 April, 2017, 02:10

Most, but not all, of the Wisconsin dairy farms that had their milk contracts canceled by Grassland Dairy have found new buyers.

Tony Senn, who owns Swiss Miss Farms near Fox Lake, said he signed a six-month contract last night after DFA sweetened initial offer to farmers. But it's enough to keep them in business while they pursue other options. Over the past year, USA lawmakers have had extensive communication with their Canadian counterparts, and with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his cabinet over the country's dairy pricing policies.

On Tuesday, the Trump administration slapped Canada with a 20 percent tax on lumber imports - and there were reports that President Donald Trump was considering withdrawing from the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA, in the next few days.

In the first two months of 2017, Mexico increased its imports of skim milk powder from the European Union by 122 percent over past year, according to the EU Milk Market Observatory (as first reported by the Irish Farm Journal).

"Mexico is looking to make sure they have market alternatives because of the rhetoric from the USA on renegotiating Nafta", said D. Scott Brown, who teaches agricultural and applied economics at the University of Missouri, referring to the North American Free Trade Agreement.

"We can not tolerate Canada's continued disregard of their trade commitments to us", Schumer wrote alongside Senator Tammy Baldwin.

"If NAFTA were functioning properly you wouldn't be having these sorts of very prickly, very unfortunate developments back to back", Ross said. The five-month Class I average rests at $16.47, up from $14.18 at this time a year ago and compares to $16.34 in 2015.

For years, dairy farmers in Canada have been resistant to any change or reform to their policies.

Tewksbury first milked cows as a kid growing up on his father's dairy farm in northeastern Pennsylvania. But to blame that country for the failings of an American industry that trades in cronyism and rent-seeking is not only dishonest, but prevents us from examining and correct the errors in our own economic policies.

Jennifer and Shane Sauer, owners of Sauers Dairy Farm, N491 Youker Road, Waterloo, are hoping to resolve the issue of where to ship their cows' milk prior to the May 1 deadline. Thus buying less from the U.S.

Rolling Hills said it made the hard decision to take on a couple of the farms even though it didn't need the additional milk now. The dairy farmers have been working diligently working since receiving the letter dated April 1 to find a replacement producer.

As Canadians note, the real problem with the U.S. dairy industry is massive overproduction. This is what he had to say about trade dealings late last week: "But what happened to our dairy farmers in Wisconsin and New York State, we're not going to let it happen".

"While some processors and milk cooperatives are already losing millions of dollars in business, this has the potential of hurting dairy farms across the state", he continued. Jobs in rural Canada and future generations of farmers are at stake.

"We were fearful that if we just got talk, if the federal government said this was important, it wouldn't get Canada's attention", Walker said.

USA processors, like Grassland, had been exploiting a loophole in the trade agreement that allowed them to ship ultra-filtered milk to Canadian cheese plants tariff-free since it was classified as an "ingredient" at the border.
