Just wanted to ask all of you anti wheat board boys; are you happy now? Wondering how many of you wheat board haters are still sitting on 2012 wheat that is unpriced as the price continues to tank? Contrary to popular belief I am not a "TROLL". I am simply making a point and asking a question. Tia

wtf is your question?

Wheat price has nothing to do with our open market. I'm proud to say I got paid more this year for my durum than I did last year from the board during higher world prices. Thanks for the open market little man. Maybe take a look at the big picture when you are old enough to get out of your little shell.

regardless if Western Canadian farmer have unpriced wheat or not... We NOW all have the same chance to market our wheat and barley and even canola the way we want.. Even the CWB supporters can still sell through their beloved CWB..

and that is all it really was about "Freedom of Choice"

Personally; I'm Happy to be able to finally manage my farm, instead of having a pinhead in Winnipeg doing it for me.

I am quite happy but urge people to ignore this thread.;)

Little man you need to find something productive to ask about. We've been through this a hundred times, nothing has changed!:rolleyes:

X2 - Don't try and pick a fight with everyone on here. This will be the 101st time someone has tried this since the CWB monopoly was gone. I'm sick of talking about it. Piss off Little Man. Manage your own farm, not everyone else's.

Just a note - If you want to talk about the CWB changes that's fine but don't come on here and throw a punch at everyone to get the question started. When you grow up then come back.

Could sell whole crop today and probably still get more than the CWB on the old system so where is the problem? Im sure almost everyone has sold some at 8.50 to 9.00 if not where have u been the last 5 months.

Not sure about tanking....prob still higher than they've ever been. I am just so happy to have been able to move ALL my wheat when I wanted, got paid all at once, and do not have to haul in the spring on restricted roads. :D Sorry but seems your pretty much alone in your own little depressed world as far as this thread goes!!!

I'm not so sure I share the optimism some of you have that we are better off without the monopoly. Currently we are enjoying high commodity prices but what will happen when prices go down again. I sure hope you boys are right and things turn out to be better off. We are involved in an industry that has proven in the past to have little compassion for the "little man", which lets face it we all are, no matter the size of your farm. With the previous CWB monopoly, led by the farmer elected board, we as farmers had some control and influence if we worked together, now we have none. When commodity prices go down and we are in search of some margin I know that the big grain companies are not going to be working in my best interest as the former farmer controlled CWB did. You have probably all heard the old saying "divide and conquer".
Oh and by the way to those of you who feel the need to tell me to get lost or piss off you need to grow up and show a little more class. Do you always throw a hissy fit when someone says something you don't agree with, or just when Daddy or Grandpa won't buy you a new tractor.

Pricing new crop

The open market has allowed me to aggressively market my 2013 wheat crop on my terms with a know outcome. The grain companies have allowed us to pick our grade designation with upside if we produce higher grades than designated. Flexible, cash flow and risk management. If you are still sitting on most of your old crop wheat with record high prices you need to return to selling your wheat through the board.

I'm with you "little man"!!!!! But don't you think it's brad wall and a group of secret bankers that is bringing the price of wheat down? Or maybe it's the Easter bunny....... I've never trusted that **** rabbit

Wow, you have some serious rose-colored glasses on there. Anyone who thinks farmers had any control at the old CWB or thinks we received a fair price for our wheat is delusional at best and an idiot at worst. The old CWB would have blown out most of our wheat back early last summer when Algeria and every other country was so worried about the wheat supply. We as farmers would have watched the price soar and the press release from the CWB would have read "Farmers are unlikely to participate in this rally." Yeah, only designated area farmers. With the CWB gone, a lot of farmers now did participate in that rally and have grain sold and priced at high levels. I have some unpriced 2012 wheat. It's my wheat, I think there is a great chance at another weather rally after seeding. Why do you think you deserve to price my wheat when you want? I love the fact I can now legally tell you to get your grubby, socialist hands off of my wheat!

I feel dirty for posting in your troll thread but you CWB Stockholm syndrome types need to be corrected.
