CWB tightens call centre hours

The Canadian Wheat Board has pared back the hours for its Farm Business Team office, starting Monday.

The FBT, which manages phone calls and email inquiries from Prairie wheat and barley producers, will be available from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. CST as of Nov. 14, down from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. previously.

The change is being made "to better align business hours to farmer calling patterns," the CWB said in a notice to growers. The move is expected to allow the CWB to "serve farmers effectively during the times they most need assistance."

The FBT can be reached during its revised hours at 1-800-275-4292 or by email.
