Regional Impact of Change in Dairy Trade Policies on the Northeast U.S. and Central Canada Dairy Sectors
Doyon, Maurice; Pratt, James E.; Novakovic, Andrew M.
Quebec, Ontario and the Northeast U.S. are expected to be important players in Canada-U.S. dairy trade. This study explores two dairy trade scenarios between Quebec, Ontario and the Northeast U.S. In simulation I, the U.S. is allowed to unilaterally export yogurt and frozen desserts to Canada, and simulation II reflects a total free trade environment. In both trade simulations, the Canadian farm milk value decreases significantly.
