Last minute trade agreement is a 'hopeful' sign for ME dairy industry

Dairy farmers in Ontario are expressing concern about the new USMCA trade deal

Federation President Zippy Duvall says President Trump's approval of the modernized U.S. -Korea Free Trade Agreement preserves a two-way trade relationship that greatly benefits America's farmers and ranchers.

At a press conference yesterday, Trudeau predicted the new pact would be "profoundly beneficial for our economy" and "the most important progressive reform for North American workers in a generation".

"We are very disappointed on what was agreed to in this deal".

Duane Martin, president of the Delaware County Farm Bureau, said the US dairy industry has always been marginalized in trade deals such as NAFTA, where Canada was granted a provision to protect its industry through a quota system, controlling the amount of milk produced. It also says the first 2.6 million Canadian autos exported to the USA will be exempted from tariffs, a figure well above the current export rate of 1.8 million. We also remain concerned about the remaining steel and aluminum tariffs. That oversupply keeps prices low.

She said the amount and type of compensation will be worked out in coming months.

"It's a phase out", White said, "so it may take two years or it may take three, but they're going to phase it out, so that was a big win". Mark Stephenson heads dairy policy analysis at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

"We applaud the three governments for working to modernize the agricultural chapters in the agreement", he said.

Also, steep tariffs that Trump imposed in May on steel from Canada and Mexico are still in effect; Robertson says Canada was hopeful the trade agreement could help change that.

The Progressive Conservative government said it will be speaking with industry representatives to determine the impact of the new trade deal.

The American Dairy Coalition (ADC) is a farmer-led national lobbying organization of progressive, modern dairy farmers.

Stephen Colbert Has 1 Painfully Awkward Question For Brett Kavanaugh
Leftist law breaking, rule breaking, violence, and disruption have already marred the public Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. On Monday, his lawyer Barbara "Biz" Van Gelder said he had been interviewed "but his interview has not been completed".

"Today the United States is measuring their success in terms of what they got and Canada is measuring their success by measuring what they didn't have to give up, so it's pretty clear which end of the stick we are on", Scheer told reporters.

But Mr. Mussell said it is not clear what would happen to quota values, noting much of the value can not be realized, and it does not trade freely.

"It won't make up for the losses", said David Wiens, vice-president of the Dairy Farmers of Canada, an Ottawa-based industry group that represents the nation's 12,000 producers.

The agreement reached would allow U.S. farmers greater access to the dairy market of Canada. Canada fought hard to retain Chapter 19, a holdover from NAFTA that USA trade ambassador Robert Lighthizer worked tooth and nail to eliminate.

"Unto themselves, the Canadian consumer will not be the solution for US dairy supply or over-supply". But Robertson says lawmakers aren't rushing to do so; congressional leaders have said they're not planning to consider ratifying it until next year.

Cardi B surrenders to police after strip-club brawl
Cardi B is now facing legal issues stemming from an alleged fight she partook in at a New York City strip club on August 29. Cardi B was "throwing chairs, bottles and hookahs [smoking pipes] in the club at 3 a.m.", according to a police spokesman.

This all means Canadians will have more cheese and ice-cream options at the grocery store, but they won't necessarily be cheaper than local dairy products.
