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.

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.
