Facing deadline, most Wisconsin dairy farms find new buyer

Facing deadline, most Wisconsin dairy farms find new buyer

"Our federal and state governments can not abide by Canada's disregard for its trade commitment to the United States, and its intentional decision to pursue policies that are choking off sales of American-made milk to the detriment of US dairy farmers", said Tom Vilsack, the former secretary of agriculture and current president and CEO of the US Dairy Export Council, in a statement earlier this month.

Columnist Lee Mielke wraps up the week's dairy industry news.

The U.S. Dairy Export Council (USDEC) is a non-profit, independent membership organization that represents the global trade interests of U.S. dairy producers, proprietary processors and cooperatives, ingredient suppliers and export traders.

The letter cited the importance of exports to the US dairy industry, noting that approximately 15 percent of USA milk production amounting to roughly $5 billion a year leaves the country.

I could write reams of copy of who is to blame: Canada, for clear violations of long standing trade agreements.

That's because Grassland Dairy will stop picking up Prosser's milk, forcing him to sign a new contract with Dairy Farmers of America.

"It is a real tough situation", he said. Yet the Canadian dairy industry, in defending its milk reclassification policy, indicated the product was duty-free, quota-free, did not impose any import taxes, and thus did not break any import rules. It will be the last day picking up milk from Prosser's farm. Tony Senn milks cows for Swiss Miss Farms says he's happy about the agreement, which will allow them to get back to their work. USA processors and producers assumed NAFTA promised them a never ending market for excess production.

Trudeau has said Trump was misunderstanding the Canadian import market, pointing to US's dairy-trade surplus with Canada.

While the Minnesota dairy farms appear to be taken care of for the time being, both Bozic and Sjostrom think there will be long-term changes to the industry.

DFA is a national dairy marketing cooperative that serves and is owned by more than 13,000 members on almost 8,000 farms in 48 states.

"This "America's Dairyland" series offers an opportunity to meet the people who call Wisconsin home and strive to educate, advocate and make the milk used for Wisconsin dairy and cheese", said Patrick Geoghegan, senior vice president of communications for the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board. A number of other dairies also received the same notice, but were able to reaffirm their agreements for contractual reasons.

They also see continued consolidation and vertical integration as likely industry trends.

"My field staff looked at them and said, 'My gosh, these are great, wonderfully kept farms,"' Mullins said.

CHARLTON, N.Y. In this era of low milk prices and escalating costs, dairy farmers need every penny they can get. "They need these markets available to them".

WMMB reached out to consumers and businesses around the state with a full-page ad in 15 newspapers on April 23, encouraging them to take these actions to support the dairy farm community.

"Not having this to deal with, and the stress, is going to be huge", Senn said.

"That would be tragic", he says. However, he hopes none of the region's modern, efficient operations with bright futures close down because of the issues with processing capacity.
