GRAIN MARKETING

Grain Marketing With Firm Offers

Grain storage site

Grain marketing is a difficult and important job that indicates the profitability of your operation. It all starts with a Market Plan and understanding where your break-even is.

We purchase a lot of grain on Scale Up Selling through Firm Offers. A firm offer is a commitment of bushels for a specified delivery with a specified price. It will be kept on file until you cancel it or it is filled. If a firm offer is filled before canceled it is a binding contract. We will mail the contract out after it is filled. You can give us a flat price, basis or a Hedge-to-Arrive level on your firm offers. Let us know your target price levels and let us watch the market for you!


Grain Contracts & Settlement Reminders

  • All grain contracts must be signed and returned within 10 days of receipt.
  • All grain contracts must be delivered in full.
  • All Defer Pay Grain must be notified prior to settlement.
  • You must sign a Defer Pay Contract before your settlement or your check will print automatically.
  • You can look at all contracts and settlements online at I-view.
  • Grain checks are written on Mondays and Thursdays. Grain checks will only be written to the name on the scale ticket. When you receive a check, the Purchase Settlement on the back has a summary of current contracts of that commodity. Any liens on the crop that are filed on the current (CNS) Central Notification System will be listed on the checks.
