The market for feed wheat is still holding up at decent numbers across Saskatchewan. $4.50 to $4.75/bu picked up in the yard is an attainable number in many areas and if producers are in a good freight lane, $5.00/bu may be tradeable. The current discount for last year’s crop, up to 10 parts per million, only knocks bids down into the low to mid $4.00/bu range, if the product meets weight specs at a minimum of 58 pounds per bushel. Milling wheat values are a little stronger lately due to the threat of wet weather and harvest delays hurting quality. This has been helping the price frim up a touch. Some local bids have been back up to the $6.50 range or better delivered into facility. Winter wheat seeding is slower in the States due to rain, but Russia and FSU continue to be in optimum conditions this week.
