Happy New Year 2018
As we come into the New Year and are bombarded with Resolutions, and all the motivational quotes that come along with the New Year saying such as…
“Don’t be afraid to start over. It’s a brand new opportunity to rebuild what you truly want.” -some calendar with a lady climbing
“What will you do” Start your New Year the right way.” -some Meme with Samuel L. Jackson in a suit holding reading glasses
“The harder you work, the luckier you become. Just start!” – some daily motivation quote showing Bradley Cooper with a sweet beard smiling
I seem to have a love / hate relationship with this stuff, no doubt at times it does inspire me but at other times it’s just plain annoying. Here we are in a new year, my strategy is what I enjoy doing, do more and what I don’t like doing do less. Nothing fancy just trying to always move forward, and you know who taught me that…..farmers. Here’s to another great year of moving forward, and getting a little wiser from all the dumb things we’ve done last year.
Cheers to you!!
Happy New Year!!

2017 Market Review
Pulse markets took a big hit in 2017. Supply has caught up with demand in India and with the added duty to peas, lentils and chickpeas they are supporting their domestic market rather than importing. China has
some demand but won’t fill all the gaps. Take advantage of opportunities as they come available.
After a weak start to 2017 we saw feed barley prices jump up in the summer of 2017 and have stayed fairly strong through fall and heading into winter. Stronger livestock prices and export have kept competition high but feed buyers are buying easily and opportunities full quickly.
Oat prices improved throughout 2017 but good quality crops this year seem to be keeping prices fairly flat.
As with oats, good canola crops this year and record acres suggest a bearish market heading into 2018. With soy demand high, the door could open for canola as less soy becomes available.
