    Landowners enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Program are being notified that they are scheduled to do their mid-management this fall will need to destroy the hay. South Dakota Senator John Thune said this notice came out less than a week after USDA said it would release CRP acres for emergency grazing in the areas with severe or extreme drought. In Thune’s words, “it makes no sense” for USDA to simultaneously offer assistance to livestock producers through emergency grazing and require hay be destroyed under other CRP practices.

  • Canadian Trade Policies Challenged
    An international coalition of dairy industry groups from the United States, New Zealand, Australia, Argentina and the European Union is focused on Canada and its trade practices. In a joint letter, these groups are asking their respective governments to challenge the recently implemented dairy pricing rules in Canada. In February, Canada launched a pricing policy that lowers the ingredient prices for Canadian dairy processors and selling Canadian dairy proteins in world markets at below-market prices. These groups, which include the National Milk Producers Federation, U.S. Dairy Export Council and International Dairy Foods Association, indicate the World Trade Organization may need to resolve this dispute.
