Sessions

Neil Townsend has done one thing during his career in agriculture: write market commentary for farmers. He has worked at the Canadian Wheat Board, Cargill, CWB 2, and G3 in this capacity. For the last 3.5 years, he has worked at FarmLink as the Chief Market Analyst. Neil works with his team to make sense of the markets and advise farmer clients on timing of sales and marketing strategy. Before embarking on his Canadian ag career, Neil spent three years trying to buffer Northeastern Thai farmers from information disequilibrium. He lives in Winnipeg with his wife and three sons.
