"CDC Ruffian is a very strong milling oat variety that performed extremely well on our farm. Short strong straw with very plump kernels and exceptional yields."
- Ken McDougall, McDougall Acres Ltd., Moose Jaw SK
"CDC Ruffian has exceeded our expectations in the last couple years under varying weather conditions as to yields, standability and quality. That is why for a milling oat choice I recommend CDC Ruffian to our customers."
