Congressman Mike Gallagher Releases Statement on Grassland Dairy

April 5, 2017
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Today Rep. Mike Gallagher released the following statement in response to Grassland Dairy ending milk contracts with Wisconsin dairy farmers after losing sales to Canada:

“Canada is breaking longstanding trade agreements and Wisconsin farmers are paying the price. The announcement that Grassland Dairy will be cutting its milk intake from our local farms because of new Canadian regulations preventing the sale of our dairy products in their country is not consistent with our values nor our agreements. Trade must be free but fair, and Canada must play by the rules and end their protectionist policies. I've contacted the U.S. Trade Representative on this issue and will continue to push hard for fairness in the days ahead.”
