Canada: Trump is wrong when he says dairy practices unfair

Last week, a spokesperson for the Dairy Farmers of Canada said the United States needs to be responsible for managing its own production, and that it is not their responsibility to consume America's over-supply of milk when they already have more than enough for its own market.

"Of course, having a USDA secretary confirmed and having a US trade representative confirmed would be very, very helpful".

Provincial governments have also been active in trying to prevent Buy American policies, with Ontario cabinet ministers successfully deterring NY lawmakers earlier this month from imposing stricter rules in their state budget.

He also pointed out that "Canada's dairy industry is less protectionist than the USA, which has employed technical barriers to keep Canadian dairy out of the US market".

The senators' letter further details that the action is leaving farmers with hard decisions about the future of their farms.

Majority of Americans don't think Trump is keeping his promises
A growing majority of Americans no longer believe President Donald Trump can keep his promises, a new poll by Gallup revealed. The White House has questioned whether pollsters are accurately measuring Trump's popularity, according to Politico .

In the letter, released by Ottawa, ambassador David MacNaughton said Canada's dairy industry was less protectionist than its USA counterpart.

Most dairy products sent to Canada are subject to heavy tariffs, but ultra-filtered milk from the US wasn't subject to those tariffs because it came into use after NAFTA was approved in 1994.

Trump did not specify what parts of Canada's tariff-protected dairy sector he wanted to change, nor what measures he would take to make it happen, but his remarks re-ignited calls for a complaint to the World Trade Organization.

"As we feared, these policies are now prohibiting our nation's dairy processors from accessing the Canadian market", said Michael Dykes, D.V.M., president and CEO of IDFA.

Canada's ambassador to Washington says President Donald Trump is wrong when he says Canada's trade practices in the dairy industry are "very, very unfair". "As made clear in the report, Canada is not a contributor to the overproduction problem".

"New York's dairy farmers rely on the export of their products and we need to do what we can to ensure they continue to have a home for their milk", Ball said Tuesday. "It's a bad thing that happened to the farmers of Wisconsin", he added.

"There's a national surplus".

"We're going to make some very big changes or we're going to get rid of NAFTA once and for all", he said.

Waivers and exemptions have been "abused greatly", a US senior official told reporters Monday. New York's dairy industry is the state's largest agricultural sector having nearly 5,000 family-run farms that are home to more than 618,000 cows, resulting in an average of 128 cows per farm. "Our biggest dairy trade partner is Mexico, so let's not go mess that up in NAFTA negotiations". "What has happened to you is very unfair".
