Another Step Toward Improving Farm Profitability

The Farmers of North America Strategic Agriculture Institute (FNA-STAG) is dedicated to the mission
of supporting efforts to improve farm profitability and is encouraged by the recent actions of the
Canadian Wheat Board (CWB) for the move they have made to reduce the cost of shipping grain for
western Canadian wheat producers, and to improve the reliability and ease of logistics in their
transportation of wheat.
Bob Friesen, FNA-STAG CEO, says, “Anything that provides an advantage to farmers emulates the
mission and goals of FNA. Empowering farmers by reducing costs, improving profits and facilitate
farmers controlling more of the agriculture agenda. If the CWB is able to save money for the
producers it serves, then it also supports the mission of FNA and FNA-STAG and we’re supportive”.
