After several weeks, barley continues to trade sideways as feedlot coverage remains solid until the end of April. Large supply is being seen throughout Alberta and has created a stand-off between end user and producer. Weather concerns continue to mount as seeding slowly gets under way. If moisture issues remain in headlines they could start to become a price driver in as little as a couple of weeks. With the amounts still on farm expect possible spring rallies to be covered quickly as producers try to capitalize on prices that are 10-15 cents/bu higher.
