Gov Walker tries to help Wisconsin dairy farmers

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

The lumber dispute has been a flashpoint of US-Canada trade relations for decades.

A new, somewhat unexpected target is in the crosshairs of President Donald Trump's trade agenda: Canada.

"It's bittersweet for us because we know that other good farm families are still looking", he said. "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.

Milk continues to be readily available for Midwest cheesemakers, according to Dairy Market News, and a number of recently cut-off milk producers will be sending their milk into Midwest cheese vats due to actions by the Canadian government.

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. Rather, we see how a more secure border has hurt commerce in the North Country by preventing people without passports from making the weekend tourist excusions that were once easy. Even if all those deals are completed, though, 20 to 25 other farms still faced a Monday deadline after Grassland Dairy told several farmers it would stop buying their milk beginning May 1.

"It has been a bad week for U.S".

"We had roughly 23 farms that are affected", Trotter said.

"While we appreciate the interest and the focus and certainly the aggressive action (from the federal government) - I think much more aggressive than many of us expected - our hope still is that that would be more than just USA action, that that would prompt some Canadian action", Walker told reporters in Madison on Wednesday.

"That is not an option", she said.

China however is strongly opposed to deployment of the THAAD system which it fears will undermine its own military capabilities. At the same time, the United States has ordered an aircraft carrier strike group to the western Pacific, near North Korea.

Tuesday, he signed an executive order directing his new agriculture secretary to identify and eliminate regulations determined to be unnecessary. Opening the Canadian border is important to New York's dairy farmers.

Johnson's grandfather settled near La Crescent in 1887, and his father took over the farm in 1935.

"We felt we needed to at least do something, since some of these farms have been going on three weeks to find a buyer, and they weren't getting anywhere", said Micah Ends, operations manager for Rolling Hills. "As long as we have markets to send their milk to, hopefully they will be members for a long time".

"The supply-management system allows hard-working Ontario farmers and processors to consistently meet the demand for safe, high-quality products for Ontario and Canadian consumers", Wynne and Leal stated in a joint press release.

The mission of the "America's Dairyland" social media series is to highlight the faces that represent Wisconsin's dynamic dairy industry.

Adams added Canada's dairy system is created to avoid the crisis some American farmers are now facing with the sudden cancellation of dairy contracts.

Of course, smaller farmers growing for a larger variety of buyers would not be as productive as huge agribusiness.

It is part of a worldwide problem of excessive milk production, said Schenevus dairy farmer John Tauzel.

"While I am discouraged that the call did not result in a solution to this crisis, I am encouraged that we have initiated an open dialogue, which will be crucial as we work to discover any avenue available to us to assist these farmers".
