I make it a priority to
understand the
nature of your
business interests.


We all go through a process to make a pricing-decision. My job is to become your in-house research analyst, so that you have the best fundamental information to do your job better.

Everybody can access generic information and government or weather reports at the same time. What differentiates the research and distinguishes me are the contacts, style, delivery, approach and detail that are not readily available. There is so much information out there, but by focusing on what really matters and by leveraging observations, trends & opinion, decisions can then be made with confidence and less on emotion.

Feed Barley: March 2-18

With corn futures rising and Canadian dollar falling, delivered feedlot corn in S. Alberta has moved from low $230ís to about $244/t for April/May & $247/t for June/July. Capacity is getting snug; basis for 25 cars is 20 cts/bu more than 100ís. Barley price has some room to catch up. March Lethbridge is showing $232/t bid by $235-238/t offer. April/May/June barley is likely going to need to be $245/t to compete with corn, which by the way has a rising mid quality wheat rocket-ship to contend with. New crop barley has risen to $223-225/t del Lethbge. This fits well with cycles where anticipated blow-off phase appears engaged.

A view on this has just been completed. If would like more detail or on anything else in the reading room, please send me an email or can be reached by
