 The Marketing Freedom for Grain Farmers Act takes effect on August 1, 2012. This means barley and wheat producers will have a choice between selling their grain on the open market or through the Canadian Wheat Board.

The Government of Alberta hosted nine information sessions around the province in January and February to provide Alberta producers with the most up to date information available. Topics included Canada’s position in world markets, pricing in the new system, delivery and grading, transportation and logistics, research and development and farm management implications.

A series of documents was developed to summarize the topics involved. Please see the following links for more information:
