The 2009 Import and Export Market for Machinery for the Extraction or Preparation of Animal or Fixed Vegetable Fats and Oils in Canada

The 2009 Import and Export Market for Machinery for the Extraction or Preparation of Animal or Fixed Vegetable Fats and Oils in Canada

On the demand side, exporters and strategic planners focusing on machinery for the extraction or preparation of animal or fixed vegetable fats and oils in Canada face a number of questions. Which countries are supplying machinery for the extraction or preparation of animal or fixed vegetable fats and oils to Canada? How important is Canada compared to others in terms of the entire global and regional market? How much do the imports of machinery for the extraction or preparation of animal or fixed vegetable fats and oils vary from one country of origin to another in Canada? On the supply side, Canada also exports machinery for the extraction or preparation of animal or fixed vegetable fats and oils. Which countries receive the most exports from Canada? How are these exports concentrated across buyers? What is the value of these exports and which countries are the largest buyers?

This report was created for strategic planners, international marketing executives and import/export managers who are concerned with the market for machinery for the extraction or preparation of animal or fixed vegetable fats and oils in Canada. With the globalization of this market, managers can no longer be contented with a local view. Nor can managers be contented with out-of-date statistics which appear several years after the fact. I have developed a methodology, based on macroeconomic and trade models, to estimate the market for machinery for the extraction or preparation of animal or fixed vegetable fats and oils for those countries serving Canada via exports, or supplying from Canada via imports. It does so for the current year based on a variety of key historical indicators and econometric models.

In what follows, Chapter 2 begins by summarizing where Canada fits into the world market for imported and exported machinery for the extraction or preparation of animal or fixed vegetable fats and oils. The total level of imports and exports on a worldwide basis, and those for Canada in particular, is estimated using a model which aggregates across over 150 key country markets and projects these to the current year. From there, each country represents a percent of the world market. This market is served from a number of competitive countries of origin. Based on both demand- and supply-side dynamics, market shares by country of origin are then calculated across each country market destination. These shares lead to a volume of import and export values for each country and are aggregated to regional and world totals. In doing so, we are able to obtain maximum likelihood estimates of both the value of each market and the share that Canada is likely to receive this year. From these figures, rankings are calculated to allow managers to prioritize Canada compared to other major country markets. In this way, all the figures provided in this report are forecasts that can be combined with internal information sources for strategic planning purposes.

Brent's Residence - 1871

Brent's Residence - 1871

2128 Leckie, Kelowna, BC.

Statement of Significance:

Description of Historic Place:

Brent's Grist Mill consists of a grist mill and two associated buildings; Brent's residence and a dairy barn. The three buildings are located on a large site at the northwest corner of Dilworth Drive and Leckie Place, adjacent to Mill Creek and the Canadian National Railway right-of-way. The buildings were relocated here in 2002, and were sited to retain their original orientation to one another, including their location along Mill Creek. The buildings are in the process of being restored by the Central Okanagan Heritage Society.

Heritage Value:

Brent's Grist Mill is of heritage value as an excellent and rare surviving example of pioneering agricultural and production practices in Kelowna. It was one of the first industrial enterprises in the Okanagan Valley and is the oldest surviving purpose-built grist mill building in B.C.

Frederick Brent faced many challenges in establishing his milling operation. He had to travel to San Francisco to buy his equipment, then move it by sailing ship, train, freight wagon, lake and river steamers, row boat along Okanagan Lake and, for the last 6.5 kilometres, by horse-drawn sledge, illustrating the challenges faced by early settlers at a time when this area was remote and transportation was difficult. At the end of each season, the millstones had to be dressed with steel picks, which until 1885 had to be sent to San Francisco for sharpening. The mill was an immediate success, and settlers and local natives from throughout the Okanagan Valley brought their grain to be ground into flour, with up to a dozen camps at a time being set up on the creek waiting their turn at the mill.

The demise of the mill indicates the rapidly-developing food supply networks being developed throughout the province. Brent sold the property in 1893, and milling operations ceased, a result of cheaper flour being available from the steam-driven mills at New Westminster. The grist mill was later adapted for use as a dairy barn, and another dairy barn structure was added to the site circa 1912. Although the milling operation was dismantled, Brent's portable mill, with its imported millstones, survives and is displayed at the Kelowna Museum.

Additionally, Brent's Grist Mill site is of value for its association with Frederick Brent (1827-1919), one of the earliest European settlers in the Kelowna area. He acquired his land, over 800 hectares, in 1870, and Peon Creek was renamed Mill Creek after his milling operation. Brent was well-known for his hospitality and for hosting the annual 'Bachelor Ball' at his house. He was appointed as a Justice of the Peace in 1872, and raised a family of six children; some of his descendants are still located throughout the Kelowna area.

The grist mill and house are rare surviving structures from the 1870s, when there was a recession throughout the province and little construction occurred. As such, they are a valuable representation of the building practices of pioneer times. The grist mill was built of hand-hewn pine logs for the posts and beams, joined with pegged mortise and tenon joints. The siding is whip-sawn lumber, attached with forged square nails. The large one-and-one-half-storey house was built in 1871 of large squared logs. The site was acquired by John Dilworth in 1900, and prior to 1908 he installed milled siding on the house and added plaster walls on the inside, indicating the pattern of improvements made to pioneer houses as the settlers prospered and more refined materials and techniques became locally available.

The preservation of Brent's Grist Mill reflects the community's commitment to conserving and interpreting their built heritage.

I'm laying here, drinking a glass of white wine and working on my photography.
Got to love the weekends. I get to relax all day and catch up on processing old shots. Caught up on a few days worth of shooting. I'm still a few months behind, but I'm making an effort in getting up to date.

Today I made my first eBay purchase. I've been avoiding eBay for over 6 years now; don't ask why. Some camera equipment are just too expensive for what you get retail. Ebay is just so much cheaper for these things.
So I got a remote trigger for my camera so that it's easier to shoot while my camera is on a tripod. I also got a cheap diffuser for my new flash to soften shadows more.

I'm starting to obsess over these 'product' shots. I just love the bright backgrounds and the low key shots. Maybe tomorrow I'll try a low key with my flash.

Note to self: don't get bristol board wet or it will ruin the board....oops guess I'll have to use the one in this shot as a reflector...

Camera: Canon EOS Rebel XSi
Lens: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM
Aperture: f/9.0
Shutter Speed: 1/200 Sec
ISO: 100
Focal Length: 100mm

Strobist: 580EXII on camera fired at 1/8 power and 105mm towards white bristol board to the left of camera. DIY mini reflector use to the right of subject. Clear plastic wrap and water used for added reflection.
Minor post to whiten background more and enhance colours.
