Malt Markets Changing
The malt market is changing faster than I can ever remember with new varieties gaining acres fast and old ones dropping off quickly. See the CMBTC report here https://cmbtc.com/publications/recommended-lists/
CDC Fraser seems to be on a huge increase with a number of buyers and it's a great variety. We started growing it about 5 years ago and stopped due to slow sales, but now are back selling it due to increasing demand.
AAC Synergy is still being grown (lots just grown for feed use) but I think malt use is decreasing.
In a future email we will be able to talk about malt new crop contracts from Molson Coors (& Canada Malt for those North of highway 1 & in SK) with Bill Coors 100 variety but new crop contracts are not out yet.
