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.

Western Canada Feed Grains: July 01-17

Canada domestic barley market is gearing up to be priced off US DDG or corn which is apt to include (a) greater DDG imports (5% of ration now but can go up to 20%), DDG worth about CAD $225-230/t S. Alberta today, (b) if more DDG imports cannot occur fast enough, import more corn, (c) send more feeder cattle to the US where feeding margins become superior.

Key to 17/18 price discovery is adjusting to corn feeding economics, not wheat feeding economics that dominated 16/17. This has just been researched. Also a detailed outlook of durum too. If would like more detail, please send me an email or can be reached by
