The Canadian Wheat Board says it's streamlining services to save farmers' money, while adding more field staff.


Regional CWB offices in Airdrie, Alberta and Saskatoon have been closed. Staff will now work from home offices.


Glenn Tole, director of farmer service, explains they have hired additional staff while also rearranging the territory for other Farm Business Representatives.


"The reasons for the changes are just because of the size of those areas and the volume of producers in those areas," he explains. "The philosopy is to have face-to-face interaction with farmers in their local communities, have a resource available to them, and basically be the farmers' business link directly to the CWB."


The Board now has 17 farm business reps located across the prairies.
