A lack of inland infrastructure and port capacity is costing Canadian farmers money.

That from Thomas Mielke, executive director of global research and analysis with Oilworld - an independent forecasting service based out of Hamburg, Germany.

Mielke told the crowd at Ag Days last month that there is demand for Canadian canola meal and seed, however, that demand can't be satisfied due to a lack of infrastructure.

"Farmers are reacting to the pricing that's in the world market by expanding production," he said. "It is important that the infrastructure develops in the same way."

Mielke says we've been talking about this issue for the past decade.

He adds there has been some port capacity expansion, however, it's not happening quick enough.
