Initial Price Policy of Canadian Wheat Board and Declining Barley Exports

This study examines initial barley price policy and other policies by the Canadian Wheat Board regarding CWB barley exports. CWB initial barley price, the percentage of final price paid to farmers initially for barley exported, has been declining, due to government reluctance to guarantee possible price short falls. This has resulted in lower CWB exports, higher non-CWB domestic supplies, and sometimes lower domestic price relative to world price. The objective of this study is to examine this and other problems, and point out alternatives which will diminish some of the feed barley export constraints. This should help ensure that feed barley revenues reflect the highest potential returns in international and domestic markets.
