Minnesota Dairy Farms Affected by US-Canada Trade Dispute

Other producers in NY and Wisconsin have reported losses. "When we renegotiate NAFTA, an agreement I opposed, we should make topic #1 enforcing existing trade commitments‎ to reverse these restrictive dairy pricing policies".

He said he expects three-way talks on the trade agreement, but said there would be a number of ongoing bilateral talks on issues that affect Canada and the US, but not Mexico.

Indeed, Canada's softwood industry makes no secret of its own search for opportunities in China.

"Canada Wood China is vying for a piece of China's $44-billion hotel industry by promoting low-density, wood-frame hotels to the Chinese hotel industry", the organization's website added. The free trade accord slashed a slew of tariffs but left many dairy industry tariffs in place. "Our government looks forward to sitting down with the United States".

USA prominence in the steel industry has been slipping for decades, and Mr. Trump is making some efforts to shore up the industry.

On Tuesday, Trump targeted Canada explicitly in taking the next steps in his "Buy American, Hire American" policy, suggesting Wisconsin farmers are suffering because of the Canadian system.

"Canada does not accept the contention that Canada's dairy policies are the cause of financial loss for dairy farmers in the United States", Canada's envoy to Washington, David MacNaughton, said in a letter to the governors of NY and Wisconsin.

Trump vowed to move "very, very quickly" on negotiations with Canada, saying he would have a more detailed plan in coming weeks.

U.S. President Donald Trump promised on Tuesday to defend American dairy farmers who have been hurt by Canada's protectionist trade practices, during a visit to the cheese-making state of Wisconsin.

Trump's threat to do away with or amend NAFTA could adversely affect the economy of Canada, whose largest trading partner is the U.S.

Trudeau made his remarks prior to Trump's latest broadside, which came just minutes later.

"What they've done to our dairy farm workers is a disgrace".

Trump said he wouldn't allow the situation to continue and brought up a separate conflict with Canada over timber. "Rules, regulations, different things have changed, and our farmers in Wisconsin and New York State are being put out of business".

On dairy, Freeland said, Canada buys five times more than it sells to the USA; on lumber, Canadian producers have always prevailed in past court cases, and a protracted dispute would only drive up US housing costs. "But we have to be aware of the fact that this push goes against free trade as a catalyst for world growth. that is why we need to work politically, culturally and economically to fight against this trend".

"That milk is already going to go into another system, which forces that system to be oversupplied, so then their price drops even more yet", Von Ruden said.
