Note: PROs are provided as price indications based on current nearby and forward markets. They are calculated basis track west coast or Thunder Bay ports, net of all projected operating costs, including G3's pool management fee. Volatile market conditions may affect the PROs significantly. PROs are not price guarantees and should not be confused with initial payments. Farmers should consider entering pool contracts as an excellent risk-management tool that provides a solid return from the entire pooling period.

To calculate pool returns backed off to the farm, farmers should factor in country deductions that they negotiate directly with grain handlers. These deductions may vary at different times of the year.

PRO commentary
2017-18 pools
PROs for the 2017-18 Annual Pools are based on the latest market information.  The wheat PRO is down given weaker futures compared to the last PRO. Current Minneapolis wheat futures prices for the December 2017 contract through to the July 2018 contract are trading in the range of US$6.11 to US$6.35 per bushel. Offsetting some of the losses is the slightly weaker Canadian dollar. The durum PRO values are slightly higher given the weaker Canadian dollar. For the canola PRO, values are higher compared to the last PRO on account of stronger canola futures. Current ICE canola futures prices for the March 2018 contract through to the July 2018 contract are trading in the range of CA$507 to CA$510 per tonne.

General pool assumptions:

  • Canadian dollar at 80 cents versus the U.S. dollar.
  • Current forward futures structure for wheat and canola.
