Wheat producers wanted for the 2017 Combine to Customer programs

Sask Wheat is seeking wheat producers who would like to attend one of the Canadian International Grains Institute's (Cigi) 2017 Combine to Customer programs.

Cigi is planning four short programs for Western Canadian grain farmers in January, February and March 2017. The program will include a number of senior level speakers who will provide insight into where the grain industry is heading and what needs to be done to stay competitive and meet the ever-changing requirements of domestic and international grain buyers. Producers who participated in these programs in 2015 provided very positive feedback about the experience and the knowledge gained through this opportunity.

2.         Feb 12-15, 2017
