How Canada Helps Its Dairy Farmers (And Why Trump Hates It)

2 min read

Canada’s dairy industry brings over 220,000 jobs and nearly $20 billion to the country’s GDP. But the system has been a target in many trade negotiations, especially the recent USMCA negotiations.

Since the 1960s Canada has used a supply management system to bolster its dairy farmers against foreign trade and the risk of overproduction. Canada has defended the system, but it is frequently targeted by other countries, and also President Donald Trump, during trade negotiations. Watch this video to learn more.

    A central planned economy existed already and it worked great. It was called the Soviet Union/North Korea/Cuba and they are doing really well. Keep it up Canada and someday you will be thriving just like them. Nice Job CNBC. What a centrist perspective.

    I go to university in Wisconsin. In one psych class we were told specifically that dairy farmers are at a very very high risk of suicide. That's how bad of shape dairy is in right now.

    What, are you telling me our agricultural system is better run than the American's is? That's shocking. So shocking, in fact, that I might have to head over to the clinic down the street and have a doctor examine me for free, after which I'll say thank you and be on my merry way.

    The American farmer mentality………..I am losing money on every gallon of milk I produce, I know, let’s raise more and make it up in volume.

    Mexico's milk is awesome as their food is also. US and Canada should take note.

    at $7 dollars for 4 liters of milk in New Brunswick there should be a police investigation into that kind of price fixing.

    WOW! CNBC is promoting our Canadian system of communist dairy and poultry production. Consumers hate this communist system here. Did Communists take over CNBC??????? As a Canadian, I can tell you not to listen to this communist propaganda.

    My family raised milk goats until our farm was foreclosed on, in the 1990's. Goat's milk here in the States is selling at premium prices. I am almost contemplating getting back into it. Last time I was in Ontario, all cow's milk was being sold in plastic bags. I have never seen milk sold this way in the States, but it's a good idea.

    I will let you guys in on a point to ponder when the Capitalistic preachers repeat their first commandment.

    " Dont like the capitalist system? Why dont you go live in Russia or China than."

    Free Capitalism today has reached porportions where unchecked it is a disease. Any moves to keep it in check will be met by these capitalistic trolls with commandments like the above.

    Open your borders Canada, let the rivers of milk flood in.

    What will happen next is as follows..

    1. Your local industry will die out. Out competed and lost to a better system they will say.

    2. The American companies will either raise more money from the markets and expand their business to a larger unsusumtainable level in the name of growth and expansion. They will flood the market and start buying out the smaller dying companies and at the end only 2 or 3 monopolies are left. Than the price will start sky rocketing because the need to maintain the company that sprawls over a continent needs to maintain its supply chain.

    Or the opposite, they will all move to Canada from America and flood american markets with milk, and rural america will wake up and wonder what happened to the millions of farming and diary industry jobs.

    3. After all the above is done, they will be complaining of tarrifs and protected markets of the EU and be dumping half their production into the drai s ajd rivers due to oversupply. Back to square 1.

    Over and over until every rural community, until every small business, until every local industry is squeezed out dry, ruined and destroyed all so that corporate shareholders enjoy a stiffy looking at constant quarterly profits and sharemarket hitting neqer highs.

    This is the new canibalistic capitalism.
    Its just as bad as communism.

    Keep preaching about the ills of communism while ignoring the middle class thats going extinct.
