Yes that sure is a crock of sh*t. Typical.
My brother in law is a grain farmer out in Hussar and was farming with his father who retired and was for the CWB but he was from the older generation 80 years old, now people just want the right to sell to whom they choose.
Frank is that for all cereal grains wheat, barley, rye and oats ?
So it looks like Canola, flax, peas and such go through a broker of some sort ?
Then with cattle the Packing Plant (foreign owned) owns the feedlot which owns about 6 months worth of cattle so they can create a surplus or demand when they chose, so they can dictate what they pay farmers at the auction mart, but the price at the grocery store stays the same no matter what the cattle price is at any given time. Go figure.
What do we do ? Keep working the off farm job to stay afloat and buy BBF parts LOL.
