SaskMilk raises concerns over new trade deal

Premier Promises To Protect Province's Economy Under USMCA

"That's one of the reasons why we aren't doing backwards somersaults over this deal", said Jim Mulhern, president of the National Milk Producers Federation, a USA industry trade group.

Previously, Canadians buying online from the USA could only purchase up to $20-Cdn. worth before having to pay import duty.

The first protections for the Canadian dairy industry were introduced around 1970.

But she also notes that the prices that dairy farmers get on their products is due to a range of factors, including the fact that there has been a decline in fluid milk consumption by US consumers.

The new trade deal between the United States, Mexico and Canada is expected to benefit Wisconsin dairy producers, thanks to some last-minute concessions made by Canada. "It sure seems that the Americans and Donald Trump are more interested in looking after agriculture in their industry than the Canadian government is looking after, particularly the dairy industry in Canada", said Haasen.

Much of a dairy farm's value is in milk quota, which is basically a proxy for one cow. "They told me they felt they have continued to give through a number of trade deals they've signed, and they're right".

With so many dairy companies and fruit growers in the area we looked into what kind of impact this new deal could cause for them. Some will wind up in teas; some will end up in yogurt.

Martin mentioned Canada's recent implementation of a pricing policy, known as Class 7, that put a high tariff - around 200 percent - on non-domestic ultra-filtered milk ingredients such as protein concentrate, skim milk powder and baby formula, making it cheaper for Canadian processors to buy domestic supplies for cheese.

"Canadian dairy farmers will now be paid less for their milk as processors import product from the states". With the new deal, none of the countries that are part of the agrement will be able to import as many parts from overseas, and Robertson says this could make it hard for auto companies to keep consumer prices down. "Supply management has been sacrificed".

Low prices have put pressure on the industry, driving some OH farmers to leave the business entirely.

Wilson added that he hoped Ontario could press the federal government to amend the terms of the agreement to better protect dairy farmers. As a result, Canadian specialty stores are constantly short of Gouda, mascarpone and a galaxy of other dairy products. "Rather, along with CETA and CPTPP, the commitments Canada has made under USMCA significantly undermine its domestic dairy sector".

"The threat of capricious auto tariffs has been lifted, stabilizing future investment" said Dias in a statement. Canada was able strike a deal with the United States at the 11th hour of a deadline Sunday night.

On the matter of Section 232 tariffs, Trump's trade weapon of choice, USA officials told a late-night conference call with reporters that the two sides had "reached an accommodation" on the issue. "We really need to see what the details are in this agreement".

"We certainly have taken a hit", Brown added.
