Marketing a crop is NOT a “team sport,” it’s entirely up to you to pull the trigger and reduce your own risk. The herd mentality tends to NOT pay big dividends! Continually talking about a USDA conspiracy does NOT pay big dividends! Remember, you build a marketing plan for the “bad years”…not the “good years.” Anybody can market $7.00 and $8.00 corn. Please do not simply stick your head in the ground and think the problem is going to take care of itself. You have to “execute.” That can mean a lot of different things for each farm operation but not doing anything, in these market climates, can be extreme.  Work on reducing risk not only for the 2014 crop but also looking out into the 2015 crop year.  Believe it or not there are still marketing strategies that you can use to protect thing going forward.  Contact your grain originator at Mercer Landmark for more information.
