Trump promises to find solution for Wisconsin dairy farmers

Gov. Andrew Cuomo of NY and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker signed a joint letter urging President Donald Trump to address the policies implemented by Canada that impact producers in two of the country's top dairy producing states.

Although the "Buy American and Hire American" executive order Trump signed appears to contain more rhetoric than immediate action, there are fears American suppliers and distributors who now rely on Canadian input may turn inwards in anticipation of stricter policies down the road.

Mr. Horgan said in an interview on his campaign bus that he hoped the federal government would exercise every tool at its disposal to protect B.C. interests.

"I strongly encourage other dairy processors to consider how they can be part of the solution", Brancel said.

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

In Fort St. John in northeastern British Columbia, BC Liberal Leader Christy Clark said protectionism is bad for both Canadians and Americans.

Francois Dumontier, a spokesman for Les Producteurs de lait du Quebec, said imports of US milk products have increased since 1993 and now account for three-quarters of milk products in Canada. We better bring Reince back. You can't stop free trade in ideas ... And we're going to do some things. There are fears among Canadians that they could be hurt as Trump targets Mexico in a re-negotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement. At the same time, Canada is seeking a new deal on softwood - a vital sector in B.C.

The work would start immediately, Trump said.

Cuomo's office noted the state's existing trade relationship with Canada.

"Canada imports 6.3 per cent of its cheese, 10 per cent of its butter and 10 per cent of its milk powders, while the US imports 3 per cent of its cheese, 3 per cent of its butter and 8 per cent of its milk powder, noticeably less than than Canadian imports". Trump says Canada has been "very, very unfair".

"We have a real stake in that game as well". 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.

"These are early days".

DATCP's Wisconsin Farm Center continues to work with farmers and dairy processors daily.
