Sessions

Larry Weber is President of Weber Commodities Inc. based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. He operates a commodity analysis company with farmers, the trade and importers as clients. Larry started his career with Pioneer Grain Company in 1981, now James Richardson International, and held various positions with the most senior being Director of Transportation in 1989. There, he gained an in-depth understanding of the Canadian grain handling and transportation system. Larry's last position in Winnipeg was with the Winnipeg Commodity Exchange (WCE) where he was Director of Operations, responsible for the trading floor staff and the orderly conduct of trading on all futures contracts traded at the WCE. In addition to his responsibilities at the WCE, Larry was also involved as the WCE's representative on the Western Grain Marketing Panel in 1995 and the representative on the Canadian Grain Commission's Grain Standards Committee. He was actively involved with grain policy with Agriculture Canada and served on committees representing transportation and marketing policy. Upon leaving Winnipeg in 1996, Larry headed to Central America where he was an integral part of the Central American Regional Commodity Exchange Project (CARCEP) to establish trading houses in Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and El Salvador. Weber's market letter is widely distributed throughout all of Canada.  Larry is in constant and continuing demand on the farm-meeting presentation circuit.  The feed-back as to his popularity with the farmer audiences reports that Larry's popularity emanates from his ability and enthusiasm to tell it like it is in a language and style that only a true Saskatchewan farm boy with an undying passion for this industry could ever hope to master.
