Canada should abandon supply management in return for U.S. lumber deal

Canada should abandon supply management in return for U.S. lumber deal The prime minister has been clear — his government will do whatever it takes to support middle class Canadians and those who aspire to be. As we engage in the third round of NAFTA talks, it is an opportune time for Canada to give consideration to whether we should maintain our reliance on supply management to the benefit of 14,000 producers, or embrace a modern trade agreement that will benefit 13 million families, including those in Calgary………

US Animals and the Canadian Herd Book

US Animals and the Canadian Herd Book US Animals and the Canadian Herd Book We are often asked about US Jerseys, the JX prefix and the bracketed Generation Count determined by the American Jersey Cattle Association. Although these identifiers help their members know what they should be looking for in an animal’s pedigree, if a Jersey is imported into the Canadian herdbook, we require a full five-generation pedigree. We consider much more than the JX at the beginning of animal’s name or brace brackets at the end. If a Jersey is

Canada trade actions may hurt Idaho dairy farms

Canada trade actions may hurt Idaho dairy farms   Dairy trade actions taken by the Canadian government may cause lasting damage to Idaho’s dairy market. Trade is a hot topic these days, with NAFTA renegotiation about to commence and U.S. participation in TPP withdrawn. But it’s the recent dairy trade actions taken by the Canadian government that I fear may cause more lasting damage to Idaho’s dairy market. We are the fourth-largest milk producer in the U.S., with 23,000 jobs related to the state’s dairy industry. All of Idaho’s 490

Dairy Groups Pledge to Work with Trump Admin on NAFTA Modernization

Dairy Groups Pledge to Work with Trump Admin on NAFTA Modernization   ARLINGTON, VA – Two leading dairy groups said today they will work with the Trump Administration to modernize the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) to make sure it safeguards open trade with Mexico and confronts increasingly protectionist dairy policies by Canada. In joint comments sent to the U.S. Trade Representative, the U.S. Dairy Export Council (USDEC) and the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) describe the existing North American dairy landscape as one in which U.S. dairy products

U.S. Dairy and NAFTA Exports The NAFTA agreement series continues our focus on commodities with a look at trade in dairy and dairy products. In 2016, nearly 40 percent of all U.S. dairy product exports made their way to our NAFTA partners, but recent moves by the governments of the United States, Mexico and Canada could lead to a change in the important Mexican and Canadian markets. A recent Market Intel article Canada Closes Door on U.S. Dairy Farmers reviews the recent concern in the dairy industry related to ultra-filtered

Canada Is Using Genetics to Make Cows Less Gassy

Canada Is Using Genetics to Make Cows Less Gassy Breeding—or someday even genetically engineering—a more efficient cow would make a dent in greenhouse gas emissions. NUMBER 1995 IS a very special cow. Every day, this Holstein, mostly black with a white cat-face-shaped spot on her forehead, sticks her head into a trough that measures the exact amount of feed she eats. She’s had her genome partially sequenced, and will soon get her breath checked for methane several times a day……. Source: Canada Is Using Genetics to Make Cows Less Gassy

Canada’s dairy farms decline even with strict quota system

Canada’s dairy farms decline even with strict quota system CANADA, June 7, 2017 – Even with its strict production quotas and guaranteed high milk prices, dairy farms in Canada are disappearing at a rate not far below what is happening in the United States. The country’s latest agricultural census shows a 14 percent decline in the number of Canadian dairy farms from 2011 to 2016. By comparison, U.S. dairy farms shrunk by 18.5 percent in the same five years…….   Source: Canada’s dairy farms decline even with strict quota system
