Prepared Floor Remarks by U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa
Stand with our Dairy Farmers
Monday, March 2, 2020
U.S. dairy producers have had a tough decade.
Margins are thinner than ever and new milk substitutes can be found in every grocery store.
And while dairy farmers scored a major victory in the USMCA with increased market access to Canada, there is a new trend that is very disturbing.
Hollywood jokers have taken a stand against raising cows with a so called “#Mootoo movement”.
This is udderly irresponsible.
U.S. dairies produce the highest quality milk and cheese in the world under the highest standards of care.
