American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall commented today on the report released by a dispute settlement panel established under the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement regarding Canada’s dairy tariff-rate quota allocation measures.

“AFBF is disappointed in the findings released by the dispute panel. We believe Canada’s TRQ policies put America’s hardworking dairy farmers at a disadvantage and don’t live up to the spirit of agreements put in place under USMCA.

“Canada has long been a strong trading partner for American farmers and ranchers, but that relationship relies on both sides playing fair. We encourage USTR Ambassador Tai and Secretary Vilsack to continue to fight to ensure our dairy farmers have access to a level playing field and Canadian consumers have access to a variety of choices at the supermarket.”
