Facing deadline, most Wisconsin dairy farms find new buyer

West Coast mills in general including those in the Cowichan Valley will not be as hard hit as some by American tariffs as the sector has worked hard to diversify their markets

By drastically reducing the price USA farms get for such milk, there's no incentive for them to export it.

Some Democrats have publicly supported the president in the dispute, particularly those from states affected by the new pricing policy.

Farmers who have been selling to Grassland are pleading for help, but most processing plants are already running at full capacity and aren't accepting more farms. Al Franken, one of Trump's staunchest critics in the Senate, praised the Trump administration as well for taking up the cause of dairy farmers in his state.

"That is right. The way raw milk is in Texas and the limitations you have, a lot of people want to have the opportunity to have the choice to have raw, but it's such a burden on them, and for us too", said Richardson.

Such a program could be expected in an emerging market or a highly-organized economy. From a tornado, to the "polar vortex" of 2014, the couple discusses what farm life was like in the first couple of years and how they managed to make it through each challenge. Given our obsession with marketing boards, we are accustomed to it. Meanwhile, US processors and producers assumed NAFTA promised them a never-ending market for their excess production-a reckless trade policy.

CME dairy prices rallied late in the post Easter week after most had lost ground earlier. Farmers are often highly vulnerable.

The president first criticized Canada's actions early last week during a visit to Wisconsin and vowed the USA would "stand up for our dairy farmers", stating his administration would be "reporting back sometime over the next two weeks", CNN reported.




His son 26 year-old son Ben is the only other person who works on the farm.

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Delaware County agriculture educator Mariane Kiraly called it "a political and policy problem that is catching dairy farms in the middle. Trump is also a man of raw instinct, not a person of reason", he wrote.

"We can't let Canada or anybody else take advantage and do what they did to our workers and to our farmers", Trump concluded. In total, the US exports about 15 percent of its dairy production. The words consumer or even customer have no meaning. Andrew Cuomo and President Donald Trump playing nicely together when it comes to securing a better deal for USA dairy producers trying to sell their wares in Canada. No strategy whatsoever. Value chains and/or design-thinking are irrelevant concepts to them.

"I think it's a bunch of games being played by big business or big co-op", Prosser said. They're about to find out that the world has changed since the 1960s. The barrels, after dipping to $1.3825 last Thursday, gained 4½ cents last Friday to close at $1.4275, unchanged on the week and a quarter-cent above a year ago. Rabobank also reported that tensions between the US and Mexico are the reason for Mexico's changing dairy purchasing strategy. "We're all doing the same thing". It added that dairy exports account for roughly 110,000 jobs. Supply management gives our dairy farmers predictable revenues.

The leadership should have come from Ottawa, but it didn't - government after government over decades.

Several federal governments have consistently shown weak leadership on this file. And now, dairy farmers will pay for this.
