Still talking about stuff you have no clue about. There's plenty of room on the gravy train. Why not jump on and learn alittle ... or alot. Reply With Quote
Oct 26, 2017 | 19:18 64 HahHa I m on the gravy train. Don't you get what I m telling you? Farming the land isn't my only business. Read between the lines. I don't get 20 cents or 21 cents or 22 cents pound. Wouldn't grow it for that. Reply With Quote

Price of canary to Mexico is same as anywhere else in the world. Highly competitive market. So apparently these mexicans have the entire world market rigged. Give it a rest. Reply With Quote
Oct 26, 2017 | 22:51 66 Dave Dave Dave. Either your a real idiot or your doing a poor job of denying the reality.
Better hire inspector clousseau no not Todd. Hahaha
but if I remember correctly were you part of the group that undercut the price of canary to gain back lost market share which caused contracts to be broken and not only that outfit got stung? There apparently were other issues with that outfit but that event was one of the problems as I remember hearing?? Reply With Quote
Oct 26, 2017 | 23:00 67 But your right Dave I give up I don't know anything??? Hahahaha

And I m going to give myself a 10 out of 10 for my comments. Just like trump. Hahahaha Reply With Quote

Oct 27, 2017 | 06:58 69 Ditto to Dave4441 regarding the value of the BOD and getting involved.

I would encourage folks with ideas to get involved, either directly or by engaging BOD members with your ideas. Expenditures to travel and lobby for your industry can be seen as perks of a board, but they also serve to educate the member regarding the global markets. Growing knowledge and expertise in our community is indeed a part of the agenda of a board, building future leaders.

Ag in western Canada will undergo a huge transition as the FSU production becomes more mainstream reducing global prices; a strong focus on an efficient ag industry grower to consumer will be necessary. Therefore, the issue of consolidation is indeed a valid question as indeed is there a significant benefit from funding separate provincial groups for every commodity?

I urge people to endorse & engage thinkers and difference makers. Reply With Quote

farmgal71's Avatar Nov 4, 2017 | 11:16 72 Did everyone vote, I hope so.

I know there is alot of frustration but I would agree that to get involved and show leadership is critical for the success of farmers.

Even posting on Agriville seems to advance the debate, hopefully this inspires someone to at least vote, maybe run and try to make a positive contribution. Reply With Quote
