Richard and myself have decided we might try 2 monthly newsletters. One written by him at the start of the month and the other written by myself near the end of the month. With Richard being in Brandon his prospective is a lot more Manitoba and Eastern Saskatchewan and I am in Calgary so my focus is in Alberta and Western Saskatchewan. If you find twice a month is too much and we don’t know what we are talking about, please call Richard with suggestions and insults.
Markets remain extremely volatile, seeing future markets up big one day and down big another. The latest price swings were because of cold weather concerns with much of the cold and snow hitting the mid-western USA last week (and some other macro factors but I am not smart enough to relay it in comprehensive thought). The Canadian Prairies finally got some moisture, in the form of April snow, and at this point all moisture is welcomed. In southern Alberta many producers have gotten an early start to seeding making headway on Wheat and Yellow Pea acres.
Give us a call if you have any questions or would like to price out current crop or new crop picked up at the bin.
Until next time,
Marketer/Owner - Calgary, AB
