Grain Farmers of Ontario launches member survey

GUELPH, ON (November 1, 2011) – At Grain Farmers of Ontario we pride ourselves on our ongoing efforts to listen carefully to our member’s feedback. Today, we are pleased to announce the launch of a member survey which will complement these efforts.

Featured both in our monthly publication Ontario Grain Farmer magazine and online, members can participate in a confidential, anonymous questionnaire about how Grain Farmers of Ontario and the Ontario Grain Farmer magazine are doing.

We would like to know if we are meeting member expectations, focusing on the right things and providing farmers with the services their farm requires.

We recognize that farmers are busy and to say thank you to those taking the time to fill out the survey we are offering an exciting incentive.

Each person that fills out a survey will be entered into a draw for free coffee for a year!

One Grand Prize of coffee on us for 1 year in the form of a $500 Tim Horton's card.

Three prizes of $200 worth of coffee from Tim Horton's.

This survey is completely voluntary and anonymous.

Please contact GFO's Privacy Office at info@gfo.ca if you require additional information on privacy issues.

For more information and to take the survey online go to www.gfo.ca/coffeeonus or look inside the November issue of the Ontario Grain Farmer magazine for a mail-in copy.

Market Trends Report for June-July 2017

Monday, June 12, 2017

It is a critical time of the year for grain markets. Across the US corn belt as well as Ontario, farmers have been planting since mid April. It continues. As of May 28th 91% of US corn has been planted and 67% of US soybeans. There are wide variations on this theme as the Eastern and Southern corn belt has seen more of its share of wet weather causing many planting delays. As we move into late June it is a time where the US crop is setting up to be made and marketing decisions for that crop are accentuated by market volatility. The June 9th USDA report gave us another indication of the supply of grain in the US and around the world.
