i'll vote for anyone who has the guts to come out and support that cbh needs to be corporatised to survive the threats posed by competition. word is bunge has already secured 200k of the 300k it intends to procure. seems farmers will jump ship if given the choice and that means cbh is going to be worth far less in the future than it is today!!!!!

Who was behind the decision to buy all those soon to be worthless train sets? All the fan fare, a manufactured freight reduction for one year and now CBH realises the rail network is crumbling and crippling the ability to even run the trains. Heads should roll on that alone. And what is CBH going to do about competition to preserve CBH's market position? These are the questions that should be asked of all candidates.

The day of reckoning is becoming closer each day for CBH. How does the grain growing industry except the massive transfer of wealth happening right in front of our eyes? Each day as Bunge accumulates grain from it's stronger bids potential value which should be on growers balance sheets dribbles onto Bunge's. For an investment of $30 million Bunge will win 10% of CBH's throughput, if that throughput is valued similar to GrainCorp's, the value would exceed $300000000. This value has gone forever, such a shame, not that the directors care they can still extract wealth, not for much longer though

Eh X Ag! First 300k out of Bunbury, now James Point to be online in 3-5 years.Thats a 3 million tonne hole out of Kwinana, the most reliable zone for CBH and the most profitable. unless CBH makes changes and fast it is a lame duck. I've written off my equity. Will never see the light of day.
