Farm profitability key to food policy

Farmers of North America (FNA) in a written release welcomed the federal government's decision to extend consultations on the proposed National Food Policy, noting however that farmers are in harvest, with little opportunity to participate.

A National Food Policy

1. Must recognize farm profitability as a necessary precondition for success

2. Address lack of competitive markets for farm inputs, directly target anti-competitive practices

3. Demand efficiency and transparency in regulatory processes, insist all relevant evidence be part of decision-making, that repeating work conducted in credible jurisdictions end

4. Allocate costs for government mandates to the government

5. Compensate farmers for contributions to the policy’s goals including environmental stewardship

6. Create a new aggressive posture for Canadian trade relations, ensuring that Canadian farmers are championed when trading partners are not playing by the rules.

Noting that much of the food policy discussion addresses issues other than farm profitability, FNA supports any consensus positions of general farm organizations, including CFA, commodity groups and livestock associations.

The deal for FNA Members is a 10% price reduction on all parts and Performance Chips for farm machinery and equipment, as well as fuel additives and conditioners. (excluding labour)

10% may not sound like a lot but some FNA Members have already reported saving more than the dollar-value of the Membership using this DSG deal to outfit their machinery with performance chips.
