Wisconsin and NY have always appreciated our partnership with USDA and look forward to working with the department to support our dairy farmers during this trying time.
Gerald Pitzen has been working on his family's dairy farm near Dickeyville for 52 years. It's unclear how the US will respond.
"One day you are looking for the future for your kids".
"Grassland recently made the hard decision to reduce our milk intake volumes". "Our next move is to find a new home for this milk, and that will be tough".
The post also pointed to Canada's population - less than the state of California - as a reason that USA dairy companies should not blame the new regulation, saying, "No matter how one views the situation, exports to a comparatively small Canadian market - one that's already filled with Canadian milk - are a drop in the bucket that will not solve the problems now impacting the US dairy industry".
The company is not releasing the total number of farms it will stop purchasing milk from, but Westers said the clusters of farms were chosen based on their location where milk producers are more likely to find a new buyer for their supply.
"We've already seen how Canada's trade barriers have cost dairy plants in Wisconsin tens of millions of dollars", read a statement attributed to Sen.

Scores of families were shifted to safer locals in Sopore area of Baramulla and in Kupwara district, a police spokesman here said. The cherry, almond and pear crops are also faced with a serious threat.
Canadian dairy farmers objected, resulting in Ontario and other provinces applying import taxes, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (http://bit.ly/2nLyUNC ) reported.
Five dairy farmers recently lost their contracts with the Parmalat-owned processor due to an oversupply of milk. "Any disruption in exports of dairy would have a devastating ripple effect on our farms and beyond, to workers in processing, transportation, and countless other sectors whose jobs are supported by these exports".
"All Canadian dairy processors are entitled to source from any supplier they want, just like the U.S. processors, said DFC Director of Communications, Isabelle Bouchard, "Nothing has changed in Canada".
"We believe the policy was created to discourage USA exports of ultrafiltered milk and incentivize Canadians to purchase Canadian milk, which is a possible violation of World Trade obligations", Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said.
Von Ruden noted that others in the dairy industry are now calling on the US government to push Canada to rescind its new ultra-filtered milk regulations, potentially by challenging them at the World Trade Organization. Industry leaders and many state and federal lawmakers have also sent letters to President Trump to address Canada's anti-competitive efforts to keep USA products out of its borders.
Dairy farmer Jennifer Sauer, of Waterloo, said she and her husband, Shane, are desperately trying to find another buyer for the milk from their 120 cows.
In a statement Tuesday, Congressman Mike Gallagher, a Green Bay Republican, said Canada's new policies "preventing the sale of our dairy products in their country is not consistent with our values nor our agreements".
