AG SEC'Y VILSACK, DAIRY INDUSTRY WON'T SUPPORT CANADA'S LATEST QUOTA FIXING PROPOSAL
Agri-Pulse reports:

Agri-Pulse reported Saturday that Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack is slamming Canada's latest proposal to fix its quota system for U.S. dairy. U.S. industry is standing behind him.

"Canada cannot be permitted to blatantly disregard their trade obligations after having been found non-compliant by a neutral and expert panel, only to then ignore their obligations without consequence," Michael Dykes, president and CEO of the International Dairy Foods Association, tells Agri-Pulse. "We are pleased to see USDA responding forcefully and hope that USTR does the same. Our government must hold Canada accountable."

Vilsack, in an interview Saturday, said he told Canada's Marie-Claude Bibeau twice in recent days that the second and latest proposal "is an unacceptable response under" the U.S.-Mexico-Canada agreement.

Krysta Harden, president and CEO of the U.S. Dairy Export Council, said in a statement, "Unfortunately, Canada simply refuses to institute real reform, and such actions must have consequences."
