He said there is not much chance of prices for oats and barley changing significantly "although a firming trend may appear with Canadian prices firming up somewhat more than the world average." But no assumptions should be made beyond the next crop year because the current raand for feed grains is partly the result of poor weather else- where which may not be re- peated.
