Ag Markets in Transition: Analyst

Agricultural markets are in transition, moving from a tight supply/strong demand scenario to one of adequate supply and reasonable demand, according to a US market analyst. Speaking as part of the USDA’s annual Agricultural Outlook Forum earlier this month, Consus Ag Consulting Partner Angie Setzer said the sharply weaker corn, soybean, and wheat prices being seen today are not a function of poor demand, despite the fact American exports have generally been slow. Instead, the primary reason for the lower prices is simply heavier global supplies. The fact of the matter is that world grain buyers are “awash” in offers, with no real shortages seen on the horizon, she said. “So, there’s nowhere out there right now where people are like, ‘oh crap, we might run out of wheat,’ or ‘oh no, we might run out of corn.’ No one feels like that right now, where we felt like that in a big way in 2022 for a short time. Demand, though good, is just not enough to outpace the adequate supply we’ve s

MANITOBA GOVERNMENT ANNOUNCES NEW APPOINTMENTS TO MANITOBA AGRICULTURAL SERVICES CORPORATION BOARD

The Manitoba government has appointed a new chair, vice-chair and directors to the board of Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation (MASC), Agriculture Minister Ron Kostyshyn announced today. “Agriculture in Manitoba is growing and I am confident that the experience, knowledge and abilities of the individuals appointed to this newly formed board will play an important role in supporting agricultural stakeholders across our province,” said Kostyshyn. The new chair of the board is John Plohman and the vice-chair is Don Kostesky. Newly appointed directors are Paul Gregory, Mary Johnson, Larry Bohdanovich, Rayna Gleich and Gurjaspal Singh Bala. Kostyshyn noted these appointments are part of the Manitoba government’s efforts to support a strong agriculture industry as the backbone of the provincial economy. The board of directors for MASC is responsible to support and encourage a strong and diversified rural economy through a variety of financial services and risk management prog

Weed seed destructors rare on Canadian farms

About 30 weed seed destructors were used last fall on farms across Canada, says an Agriculture Canada scientist. That isn’t a lot, considering more than 2,000 new combines are sold annually in Canada and the country has some 50,000 grain farms. But farmer adoption of the destructors, which pulverize weed seeds before they exit the combine in chaff, is slowly gaining momentum. “The first mills that we’re aware of (in Canada) were adopted on farm in 2018. To go from none in 2017 to 30 in 2023, to me that shows (some) producers are seeing a benefit from it,” said Breanne Tidemann, an Agriculture Canada weed scientist in Alberta. “A lot of the mills that I’m aware of came on board from 2022 and later.” Weed seed destructors, sometimes called hammer mills or cage mills, are popular with Australian farmers. In 2022 more than 1,100 new combines were sold in Australia, according to the Tractor and Machinery Association of Australia. Of those new combines, 25 to 30 percent were equipped wi
