Steve - great presentation at the LOAF meeting today. I had to sneak out before we got to questions, but I really enjoyed your presentation.

We have about 8-10 acres left to do - maybe should have trudged through last night but it was getting tough - now they are really tough. Old combine (R50) - slow going. Need air reels.
Started wheat today instead until we got rained out. Maybe finish a couple fields tomorrow if the rain holds off. Soys - might have to wait.

Bibeau announces second cohort of Canadian Agricultural Youth Council

On Thursday, Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, unveiled the names of the members who will form the second cohort of the Canadian Agricultural Youth Council (CAYC). The inaugural meeting of this new group of 25 young people will be held later this summer. The members of this cohort will serve 18-month terms. Representatives from Manitoba include Chantele Gouliquer and Boma N-Chris. "I was impressed by the energy and enthusiasm of the first cohort of the Canadian Agricultural Youth Council and look forward to working with this new group. Young people's perspectives on issues such as sustainable agriculture, innovation, intergenerational transfers, mental health and work-life balance allow us to shape the sector's future in their image," said Bibeau.

Ceres Global Ag Market Outlook

The Ceres Global Seeds Insight Tour included a market outlook this week. Minneapolis-based analyst Ryan Longhenry, with Ceres Global Ag, gave his outlook on the following crops:

August WASDE shows little change on U.S. acreage

The USDA released its August World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) report Friday morning. Jon Driedger is vice-president with LeftField Commodity Research. "Very few changes on the acreage side. It looks like farmers largely got the crop in even though there was the late start. From an overall yield perspective, a little bit lower on the corn. A little bit lower than what the market was expecting. A little friendly on the corn but a little negative on the beans. They actually bumped the yield up and that came in above expectations and so from a production perspective, maybe a little bit bearish on the soybean side."

France feeling the impacts of Canada's 2021 drought through mustard shortage

The people of France are feeling the brunt of 2021's drought as mustard supplies seem to be running low in supermarkets across the nation. France is the top consumer of mustard in the world and has been a staple of french households since the middle ages. Varieties like Dijon and Reims are processed by international companies but have their seeds mostly grown in Canada, with Saskatchewan and Alberta contributing to the vast majority of that crop.

Agri-Environmental specialists look to help producers make beneficial changes to farmland

BMPs, or Beneficial Management Practices, are a variety of programs that the provincial government is encouraging to help producers. Those can include infrastructure, land management, and other processes that help producers get the most out of their land. To help with that, Agri-Environmental Specialists are available to advise farmers as to the best practices.
