. . . . . . . .just remember in world markets, there is no #2 Canola traded. It all gets blended and mixed to become a #1. It wouldn't surprise me if most places take 1% shrinkage besides dockage set according to their own grain pans and devices.If you deal with JRI in sk #2 discount is $25/mt - $.57/bus! Not/never a CWB/CGC fan, but in deregulated world there is a lot more tariff/grade/freight adjustment/etc differentials between companies and/or locations.
The CGC has regulations in place to deal with these issues. However it is up to us to identify them and get the CGC to enforce them.. . . . . . . .just remember in world markets, there is no #2 Canola traded. It all gets blended and mixed to become a #1.

Could it be that one Co is better at knowing their blending abilities better than the others? If there was universal training all would be the same.CGC might have regulations, but it also depends on how willing the grainco is to do business with you, blending, etc. One local company consistently grades our wheat better than the other, for example. And one will try to work to blend off our worst stuff with some of our better stuff, whereas the other company won't blend our lots at all. Or at least hasn't in the last few years.
Agree that the deals are made in the office and grades are for egos. What does it matter that you are getting a poorer grade this year than last, as long as the money works out. I have dealt with so many guys that would not sell a product unless I upgraded. To stroke the ego I call it a #1, buy it as a #3. Happy, stupid, and poor. Other guys will let me call it a bag of used marbles as long as I am paying them top price. Rich and humble. You pick where you want to be.Could it be that one Co is better at knowing their blending abilities better than the others? If there was universal training all would be the same.
Deals are made in market office, grades are what they are on bench if assessed right. IMHO
Can't remember what year Western Canada had a terrible green seed issue but I do remember United Oilseed Products in Lloydminister took out a full page ad in the Western Producer publishing they're discount schedule.Try a crusher direct like bunge ,they are easier on grading then export elevator
