Crushing Statistics – StatsCan

Hmmm… let’s file this under “learn something new.” I must admit when I read this headline in StatsCan’s  The Daily, I was expecting to read an abstract about workplace safety or to find some sort of accident statistics table at the very least.  Not so.  Crushing in this circumstance refers to the amount of oilseeds crushed by canola producers in Canada – 320,201 metric tonnes in May 2009.

This oilseed data appears in the free monthly publication, Cereals and Oilseeds Review (22-007-X) along with “grain marketing data and commentary on the major Canadian grains and their products, exports and imports, cash and futures prices and domestic use data.  A monthly situation report provides industry highlights. Each issue is an up-to-date source of information for grain analysts, traders, agri-business and the farm community”   Note, the Review is usually available 2 months after its issue date.
