THANK YOU!!!!!

With the 2021 wheat harvest mostly behind us, Wanstead Farmers Co-operative wishes to thank all of our customers for your support. The quality of this year’s wheat crop is highly variable, and standard Canadian wheat grades are not accurately “predicting” the milling qualities of wheat this year.

Wanstead Farmers Co-operative recognized early this harvest that wheat quality could be compromised by continued wet weather. To combat this, we offered growers a limited time holiday on wheat drying charges, up to 17.0%. This program was an attempt to incentivize growers to harvest their wheat early instead of waiting for their wheat to dry down naturally in the field. The logic was to try to harvest before rains could further compromise quality. Our drying program was all about protecting wheat quality.

We ultimately had to suspend the program when we started to see a higher percentage of sprouted/lower quality wheat being delivered, as segregation of tough wheat became almost impossible. Thanks to your support, we now have a much higher quality wheat inventory than we would have if everyone had waited for lower moistures to harvest their wheat. There is still a lot of sprouted and mildewed grain that will have to be moved into feed channels, but more wheat will ship as milling grade, thanks to growers harvesting early!
