The canola markets have been heating up ! Soybeans usually determine our canola prices and they are not having great yields in South America. They are also starting to run down the stocks of the Soybeans in the States... If the US gets seeding early ( good chance of that ) the farmers may put more corn in the ground than beans... We currently have shrinking stocks and great demand for Canadian Canola. This has been making for some excellent prices. We stepped into the market Friday March 16 and set a price of $12.00 / bushel for 5 tonnes of canola to be delivered to Brandon in September... $10 is usually a very good price...$12 is great
Stay tuned !

Spring has Sprung

We have had a nice winter and spring has seemed to arrive early ! The farmers are getting restless ! We had some great news from World Relief Canada recently. Eric and Bruce of WRC have said we have totally funded the whole project in North Kivu in the Congo. (This is a year early ... wow ) They would like us to move an to another project. That is fantastic news. They haven't had to tell anyone something like this before ! Thanks to all of you farmers and virtual farmers who have been able to help us meet and then exceed our goals. I will have more details soon on who we can work with next.
