On Alert Over The Possible Importation of Milk

Money MattersFarmers in the province of Los Santos are on alert in response to the intentions of the industries involved in processing of dairy products to import milk into the country, so announced the farmer Luis Martinez. Martinez said the issue of milk quotas should be widely discussed with organized groups of farmers, that they can not afford the entry of milk, and they would fight, reaffirmed the farmer leader. The farmer explained they seek to create a shortage of milk in the country, to bring this product from abroad. (Dia a Dia)

Editor's Comment: With the implementation of the Free Trade Agreement with the United States, where are going to be more and more sectors of Panamanian farmers who will be squeezed by more efficient producers. Just last week there were stories about drought in Los Santos, and how the dairy farmers are complaining because their cows are producing less milk. Of course the diary farmers would like for there to be a shortage to drive prices up, so they can sell 100% of their product at much higher prices, while simultaneously blocking imports from abroad. Err, no. Maybe milking cows by hand one at a time into a plastic bucket isn't the best way to go.
