Janice Tranberg, president of the Alberta Cattle Feeders Association, called the amounts of corn imports into Canada “unprecedented.”
“The feeders are looking to bring dried distillers grains and corn from the U.S. up as much as they can,” she said.
One of the biggest challenges is moving so much corn, she added.
“This isn’t a typical route to the degree we’re bringing it up. Normally, we’re worried about how are we getting our grain west,” said Tranberg.
