launched by Canada's dairy industry takes the bull by the horns when it
comes to setting the record straight on the country's supply management
system for milk.

Dairy Farmers of Canada (DFC) has created the site – yourmilk.ca – in an effort to dispel misinformed myths about Canada's dairy industry and its successful supply management system.

"Canadian dairy farmers don't receive any government subsidies and earn their income entirely from the marketplace," said Wally Smith, DFC President. "Consumers in other places where the dairy industry is subsidized, like the United States and the European Union, pay twice for their dairy products – once at the store and one more time through their taxes."

DFC's new website will be updated regularly with various types of content (video, commentaries and others) during the next year.
