OH SNAP!! CGC OUT 1 million tonne canola

Jan 13, 2020 | 21:21 1 Those damn Primary Licensees reported faulty info to the CGC to the tune of over reporting canola disappearance by 1.0 million tonnes.

Time to abolish the CGC...they serve no purpose but to take farmers money and report falsehoods and mess with grades to the farmers detriment.

I don’t feel safe having them in the grain system anymore.

I feel more comfortable buying my elevator agent a fishing trip and a few bottles a year to look at my sample through...better outcome. Do you know how good a wheat sample looks through a bottle of top quality rum!

    Grading is one thing ....being that far off with numbers is quite another....this isn't rocket science...a walmart calculator with addition and subtraction can do the counting....

    Along with the correct reporting....there should be some asses kicked for this....

    Disclaimer....i don't grow canola....but i know it can impact other commodities... Reply With Quote

    Jan 14, 2020 | 09:26 7 I was chatting with a retired auditor a while back. He said in his day he could/would walk into an elevator pull all the paper work, turn stocks to weight and do grade/dockage on it all, if things didn't match or match reports he would escort manager out the door and see him in court the next time they met.

    He couldn't believe how it is done today said it is a joke. Reply With Quote

  • Jan 14, 2020 | 10:34 8 See USDA has trouble how to handle unharvested crop for world agriculture supply and demand estimate.
    Also a problem here in Canada, depends on how we do with spring harvest.
    Think markets generally do a pretty good job, governments maybe not so much. Reply With Quote
