Join Us to Discuss Supply Management Next Week
Canadian Dairy Farmer to Speak About
Supply Management in Elk Grove, Turlock and
during World Ag Expo in Tulare February 10-13, 2019
Dairy Farmers of Ontario Chair Ralph Dietrich, a dairy farmer from Mildmay, Ontario will travel to California February 10th through February 13th to speak to dairy producers about the Canadian supply management system and how it ensures a fair milk price. The Canadian dairy supply management system maintains stable milk prices paid to dairy producers that average more than $24 per cwt today.
California Dairy Campaign invites all California dairy producers to participate in the upcoming meetings to discuss the supply management system in Canada and how that program can serve as a model to improve milk prices paid to California dairy producers.
Ralph Dietrich served as Vice President of the Dairy Farmers of Canada and is chair of the Dairy Farmers of Ontario, a non-profit dairy farmer organization that represents almost 4,000 milk producers in Ontario. Dietrich has traveled to Wisconsin, Michigan the Northeast and other U.S. dairy states and regions to speak about Canada’s dairy system and how it maintains long-term dairy farmer profitability to foster a viable dairy sector.

Based on the fundamentals of the Canadian dairy supply management system, California Dairy Campaign is proposing a Sustainable Milk Inventory System Act (SMISA) a three-point plan to foster a strong and sustainable dairy system in the United States that includes: supply management; fair milk prices paid to dairy farmers: and effective dairy trade policy. CDC welcomes input on the plan from all California dairy producers.
