Canadian Wheat Board likely to fade outI recently attended a meeting of the Western Canadian Wheat Growers. The meeting was held in Minneapolis at the end of January. Apparently the fact the Canadian dollar is now stronger than our dollar made Minneapolis a good choice to have their annual meeting. This particular grower organization is very anti-Canadian Wheat Board. It believes farmers should have the right to market their own crops however and whenever they want. Today they must deliver all of their wheat and barley to the Canadian Wheat Board and take what they get at the end of the marketing year.
