Canada upholds its trade obligations

Canada upholds its trade obligations

Gov. Scott Walker says he spoke with President Donald Trump about the almost 40 Wisconsin dairy farmers desperately seeking help after being dropped by their milk buyer following a Canadian policy change. And American dairy farms are much more competitive than ours.

"We had roughly 23 farms that are affected", Trotter said. "We all have an opportunity and a responsibility to maintain and strengthen relationships with those that we work with in Mexico, to reassure them that we're going to continue to be open for business", he said at the Dairy Forum in late January. He said that Canada's new pricing policy uses a government-administered system to hurt the USA dairy industry, "undercutting our farmers' exports and threatening to cause great damage to world dairy prices by dumping Canada's surplus on the world market".

Walker told Trump on Twitter Tuesday that it was "great" to speak to him that morning and thanked him for supporting Wisconsin dairy farmers.

He also cited numbers from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to say that America's dairy industry woes are due to its own, as well as global, over production. "I think it has clearly gotten Canada's attention", he said.

But the purchase agreement represents a short-term fix for the trade dispute with Canada that sparked the fears in the first place.

Fox News host criticized for suggestive comment about Ivanka Trump
Just a few days into his prime-time gig on Fox News , and it's already time for conservative pundit Jesse Watters to take a break. Watters announced that he is taking an abrupt vacation after his offhand comment about Ivanka Trump stirred a controversy.

For the third time in recent years, Canada's dairy industry is a major issue in free trade negotiations.

It then goes on to say how roughly 15 percent, or $5 billion, was exported overall previous year with $631 million of that going to Canada.

"I look forward to working with the administration to pressure and persuade the Canadians to reverse this unwise policy, which is a violation of our agreements", Mr. Schumer said in a statement. Mexico has also been exploring talks with dairy powerhouse New Zealand.

Recently, Trump called on Canada to undo its harmful pricing policy.

Telling reporters he would "address" Canadian dairy imports, Mr Trump said: "It's going to mean that farmers are going to start selling milk in our country". Those farmers have made arrangements for a milk buyer or are headed into an already planned retirement. "We're all farming together". He followed in dad's footsteps and became a life-long dairy farmer in the Meshoppen area (north of Scranton, up near the NY border) until a cancer scare two years ago.

Andy Murray loses to Dominic Thiem in Barcelona Open semi-finals
Thiem started strong, breaking Murray's first two service games before adding a third break en route to taking the first set. Rafael Nadal also eased into the semi-finals with a 7-6 (7/1) 6-2 win over Hyeon Chung of South Korea.

FC Stone equated the average 80 percent butterfat GDT butter price to $2.1648 per pound U.S. CME butter closed last Friday at $2.09 per pound. "We are trying to get processors to each take five farms and that way some will have a home and not overload one or two processors out there", she said.

Now U.S. President Donald Trump, seeking to renegotiate the NAFTA trade agreement, targets our dairy supply management system.

The National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF), based in Arlington, Va., develops and carries out policies that advance the well-being of USA dairy producers and the cooperatives they collectively own. "This is not going to be a win for Canada to do this", Schumer warned in March of that year as he toured a milk processing plant in Cayuga County.

"We need to get at the root of the problem", said Chris Galen, spokesman for the National Milk Producers Federation in Washington, D.C. Jobs in rural Canada and future generations of farmers are at stake.

French Court Refuses to Extradite Kosovo Ex-Prime Minister
No date has been scheduled for elections but there is wide speculation that a snap vote will be held in Kosovo in coming months. In 2005 and 2007, Haradinaj was tried and acquitted of war crimes at a United Nations war crimes tribunal in The Hague.
