Cigi (Canadian International Grains Institute) is planning four short programs for western Canadian grain producers in January, February and March 2017. These Combine to Customer programs will look at the evolving grain industry in Western Canada.
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.
