Organisasi Perdagangan Dunia mengabulkan gugatan Amerika Serikat atas Indonesia. Batasan impor produk agrikultur yang diterapkan Indonesia buat melindungi petani lokal dinilai melanggar perjanjian dagang internasional.

Kedua negara menuding Jakarta melanggar aturan dagang internasional, dengan memberlakukan pembatasan impor terhadap berbagai produk agrikultur seperti buah-buahan, sayur-sayuran, daging sapi dan ayam.

Dewan penyelesaian sengketa WTO memutuskan 18 aturan pembatasan impor yang diberlakukan Indonesia "tidak konsisten" dengan Perjanjian Umum 1994 tentang cukai dan perdagangan (GATT 1994).

“Store Hay for dry Season” – President Advises Dairy Farmers

President Yoweri Museveni has strongly advised dairy farmers in the country to ensure proper feeding of their animals during dry seasons by cutting and storing grass that sprouts during the rainy season. The stored grass, he said, can be used in form of hay to feed their herds at the height of the dry spells to ensure more milk yields and improved quality of the animals.

“I have called you today to talk about 2 serious issues that can disorganize dairy farmers; under-feeding cattle during dry seasons and rearing cows without doing calculations,” he said.
The President made the remarks last evening at a meeting he convened at his country home in Rwakitura, Kiruhuura district. The meeting drew cattle farmers from the cattle corridor in the country.

While thanking dairy farmers for shifting from keeping cattle in a traditional way to commercial farming, the President urged them to maintain the production of milk to satisfy

Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) launches a new tool for climate finance in the Dairy Sector

The dairy sector will soon be able to participate in international carbon credit markets thanks to a new methodology that lets farmers and project designers reliably document how they are reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions - a step that will open up new sources of finance for the livestock industry and help promote investment in smallholder operations.

FAO's new Smallholder dairy methodology, tackles two major challenges facing agriculture today: the need to make agriculture more productive by increasing yields, while at the same time cutting agriculture's carbon footprint. By opening up new sources of finance, the methodology addresses the critical question of how to finance the necessary transition to a greener livestock sector.
