In my area I gave up planting it from oversupply creating not enough spread from feed. Reply With Quote

    Malt around Calgary $8.50, but feed price is $8. What value is uncontracted malt there? Reply With Quote

    Landdownunder's Avatar Sep 20, 2022 | 04:46 11 this doesn't answer your question but Australia home to me mighty fine wine wine reds in particular.

    appears vine pulling about to happen.

    two reasons less demand mostly spat with china

    and the alcohol bad brigade demonising any one who has a few beers a week six pack at best here or winter a few reds but im deemed evil in 2022

    ice users are less vilified and belittled. tis the way of the world

    same thinking might reduce beer sales and demand

    I'm not sure either. Feed delivered to lethbridge in January/March is $8.80/bu but apparently trucking costs have climbed alot. Used to get it there for about $1/bu but I think it's closer to $1.5 from NE sask.
    Malt has climbed about $1 from its lows but last year the high was made in November? Eastern Saskatchewan has good yields this year but not sure about the rest of the prairies. I've sold half of mine, sitting on the rest for now. Reply With Quote

    No barley here this year , get tired of that game Reply With Quote
    Sep 20, 2022 | 08:41 15 We put half the barley in this year as last year. I like growing and selling malt most years. For the last couple years at least, it was apparent that buyers don't want to pay much above feed price. I expect next year's barley planted for malt will drop again, until the buyers feel the need to see more supply. I wonder if there is a disconnect between the malt users and malt companies. It wouldn't surprise me to eventually see a return to a decent premium when the bins empty. Reply With Quote

    I was hoping that your second post about the $1.50 premium was something that the line company was adding to its malt price to buy a train of barley and you found out after your first post.

    With the dollar dropping hard, malt and feed barley should be increasing in value. Reply With Quote
    Sep 22, 2022 | 23:31 17 Malt Barley bids went up to $8.75 here. Feed barley bids $8.15-$8.40 picked up. Guess the low dollar is really helping. Reply With Quote
    Sep 26, 2022 | 18:24 18 Do farmers contract directly with domestic malt house now or do they still contract through elevators and merchants for both domestic and export malt? Reply With Quote
    fjlip's Avatar Sep 26, 2022 | 22:25 19 Malteurope is direct to malt house. All goes to Winnipeg, trucking included. Reply With Quote

    Might go higher yet after the states get thru their corn harvest. Reply With Quote
