FOOD DESTRUCTION: Canadian farmer forced to dump 30K liters of milk amid surging dairy prices
By Ramon Tomey // Feb 06, 2023

A farmer in Canada's Ontario province was forced to dump 30,000 liters of milk from his own farm as dairy prices in the country soared due to inflation.

In a video posted on TikTok, dairy farmer Jerry Huigen said his heart was broken from being forced to discard the milk. "Right now, we are over our quota," he said, adding that milk production is regulated by the government and the Dairy Farmers of Ontario (DFO).

"Look at his milk running away [because] it's the end of the month. I dump 30,000 liters of milk and it breaks my heart," Huigen lamented while standing beside a machine spewing fresh milk into a drain.

According to a report by the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE), Huigen said people always ask him why milk prices are so high.

"This here, Canadian milk, is Can$7 ($5.22). When I go for my haircut, people say, 'Wow, Can$7 dollars, Jerry, for a little bit of milk.' I say, 'Well, you have to go higher up [because] we have no say anymore as a dairy farmer on our own farm. They make us dump it.'"

The Ottawa-based Canadian Dairy Commission (CCL) oversees the country's entire dairy system and determines the price of milk. It raised dairy prices thrice in 2022 and attributed the hikes to "rising cost of production." Had Huigen not been ordered to dump 30,000 liters of milk, it would have kept dairy prices low due to ample supply. (Related: Food shortages could be as deadly as the next pandemic.)

The phenomenon is not limited to Canada, however, as the U.S. also saw episodes of milk being dumped during the early days of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

FEE reported back in April 2020 that a farm in Wisconsin was forced to discard 25,000 gallons of fresh milk a day as the COVID-19 lockdowns closed any markets for it. Golden E Dairy, a family-run farm near West Bend, flushed the milk into a wastewater lagoon.

Huigen exposes "opaque" milk dumping practice with his video

According to the FEE, there are two reasons why the practice of discarding otherwise edible food products such as milk persists.

"One reason is old-fashioned protectionism. High tariffs protect producers from competition, and the quotas that cap production also are designed to keep out new dairy producers. This keeps prices high, which is supposed to make farmers happy. It also pleases the government, which makes revenue from the tariffs."

"Another reason is that very few people – Canadians or Americans – realize the milk dumping is happening and the production quotas exist."

Huigen's video revealed that such policies are "lousy" for both consumers and the farmers themselves. The foundation remarked: "Even the farmers who benefit from the protection have grown angry with quotas that prevent them from producing more milk – which would have the dual benefit of earning farmers more profit and lowering milk prices for consumers."

Mac Slavo of SHTF Plan, however, attributed the scheme to a different reason.

"All of the milk dumping schemes stem from one single problem," he wrote. "There's a throne of power. When someone sits on it, the public believes they are now required to serve that sitter [and] they will do as commanded. The 'command' isn't the problem, the throne is and it won't matter if you change who sits. The goal is to control and always has been."

FEE ultimately pointed out that while the scheme is "very opaque," the dairy farmer is trying to change that.

"This time, I'm going public," Huigen said. "I want the people to see the pain that us growers have. Our little bit of profit goes down the drain."
