Compromise struck on a new Farm Bill; congress offers help to dairy, maple producers

Posted on December 13, 2018 |
By MICHELLE MONROE of the St. Albans Messenger



WASHINGTON, D.C. — A new federal farm bill, passed by the U.S. Senate Tuesday and expected to pass the House on Wednesday, provides some provisions that Vermont food producers will like.

The bill, which still must be signed by President Trump, makes some modest improvements in dairy programs while stopping an effort by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to label the sugar in maple syrup and pure honey as “added sugar.”

It also ends the national prohibition on hemp production, a growing industry in Vermont and here in Addison County.

Editorial: Canada, trade pacts, dairy and Trump's histrionics

Posted on October 4, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



During an imagined press briefing of the recently revised North American Free Trade Agreement (Nafta) between Canada, Mexico and the U.S., Trump stood with Canadian Premier Trudeau at the podium, when a frenetic American reporter raised her hand to ask excitedly: “I hear it’s the best deal ever! Please tell me, do we get Trudeau?!”

Now, that would be a great deal, even if it were tagged with the phonetically challenged USMCA.

But, no, it didn’t happen. We don’t get Trudeau.

Posted on April 5, 2018 |
By John Flowers



SALISBURY — The Bridport Grange and Addison County Farm Bureau will host a legislative luncheon on April 9 that will focus on the mounting financial challenges for farmers in the Green Mountain State.

But local farmers and lawmakers this past Monday had no interest in waiting a week to vent their frustrations, as they spent the vast majority of the latest legislative breakfast describing the fragile state of a dairy industry beset with surplus product that has reduced milk prices and left more farms on the brink of closing.

Dairy program extended to help more farmers

Posted on April 5, 2018 |
By Addison Independent



leahy, patrick.jpg

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., announced Tuesday that the U.S. Department of Agriculture will be reopening the enrollment next week for the much-improved Margin Protection Program for Dairy (MPP-Dairy).

The changes implement improvements that Leahy included in the Bipartisan Budget Act in February to give Vermont dairy farmers what the senator called a more cost-effective risk protection option. Reopening enrollment is especially important now as dairy farmers are experiencing a difficult year with falling prices for their milk.

Letter to the editor: Organic dairies would protect the lake

Posted on February 5, 2018 |
By James H. Maroney



Inadequately designed or antiquated wastewater treatment plants account for roughly 5 percent of the pollution in Lake Champlain. Upgrading or replacing these plants would require years and years and cost hundred of millions or even billions of dollars. When these plants are all upgraded, the pollution flowing into the lake from WWTPs would probably improve from 5 percent to 3 percent.
