Dairy OperationsDairy Farming in Canada provides the most stable agriculture model in the world.  Consistent production and marketing of high quality but very perishable milk has many challenges.  In Canada our Supply Management System means that we can make long term business decisions to efficiently meet the demand of the market while avoiding costly over production of a commodity that needs to go to market every 48 hours.  Canadian Dairy farms are very proud of the fact that 100 % of our revenue comes directly from consumers.  The rest of the so called free market agriculture world receives up to 40% of its revenue in the form of subsidies.
