I make it a priority to
understand the
nature of your
business interests.


We all go through a process to make a pricing-decision. My job is to become your in-house research analyst, so that you have the best fundamental information to do your job better.

Everybody can access generic information and government or weather reports at the same time. What differentiates the research and distinguishes me are the contacts, style, delivery, approach and detail that are not readily available. There is so much information out there, but by focusing on what really matters and by leveraging observations, trends & opinion, decisions can then be made with confidence and less on emotion.

The ability to consistently deliver value has one key personal touch. I make it a priority to understand the nature of your business interests. This is done with an interactive approach that builds a solid long term relationship where clients actually are personal friends.

Feed Barley: November 28-20

China bought modest feed barley tonnage from Ukraine/France for summer 2021 shipment this week. China also has bought some Canadian barley for autumn 2021 shipment, all at prices that were a tad under recent old crop highs. Not only does it indicate that China barley import appetite is shifting higher (reason explained in research), it hints that China demand bull conditions have shelf life. China would not buy major volume of new crop barley at that price otherwise.

Iím constantly mining the non-obvious for behaviour and clues to help understand big-picture trends or risk-reward. This is one of them, but event triggers several other trickle-down impacts.

Thoughts have been studied and conveyed. If you would like more detail on this or on anything else in the reading room, please send me an email an l'll send it to you. I can be reached by
