He is originally from Foam Lake, Saskatchewan where his family started farming the land nearly 100 years ago (and still does to this day on more than 80,000 acres!). Brennan’s comments on grain markets are regularly featured in everything from small-town newspapers to large media outlets like CNBC and Bloomberg.
