Yet farmers are wedded to supply management and have organized their operations around its continuation. A new report by the Conference Board focuses on dairy. It shows how a new paradigm, based on growth, can help reform supply management. It suggests an equitable way to compensate farmers for their quota investments. It also demonstrates how new growth can lead to more industry output and employment.
