perdueThe topic of Canada’s Class 7 milk pricing program came up during a news conference with Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue during the NAFB Convention last week in Kansas City, Missouri. Perdue says the new program is using supply management with a quota.

Perdue says that he doesn’t expect Canada to end its supply management program, but says they need to manage the supply.

Perdue says the U.S. will continue to press Canada to end the Class 7 pricing system as part of the NAFTA re-negotiations.
