When it comes to marketing your grain, you want to be confident in your selling decisions, but it can be hard to know where to begin. ProPricing is a great starting point, because you control what percentage of your bushels to enroll, and pick delivery periods that work best for your storage and cash flow needs. ProPricing doesn’t require you to constantly watch the markets, or have any prior forward marketing knowledge. This means that you can focus on what’s most important to you – your farm.
If you’re overwhelmed with the amount of global grain market information, or you’re unsure what action to take based on market information, consider partnering with our experts who avoid knee-jerk reactions and separate rumors from facts in the marketplace. This concept of a managed contract – where Cargill’s traders put their insights and experience to work on behalf of farmers’ grain – became what is ProPricing today.
Cargill has the largest presence in most major growing regions around the world with more than 150 years of grain buying experience. We make it our business to keep a close eye on events happening around the world that could affect the changes in the price of your grain.
Watching the grain markets is a full-time job. Just ask us – Cargill has a global network of analysts, traders, merchants, and grain originators working together to understand every market influence from your individual farm all the way to the global grain marketplace.
Every Cargill employee in the supply chain brings professional knowledge and expertise in complex grain markets and tools. When you partner with ProPricing, watching the grain markets doesn’t have to be your full-time job, because it’s already ours.
Making disciplined grain marketing decisions builds a successful foundation for your farm for years to come.
Farmers who consistently use ProPricing year after year typically recognize more value than those who vary the amount of bushels enrolled based upon the previous year’s results. In other words, looking in the rear view mirror means missing the market opportunities ahead. Don’t confuse being disciplined with losing control. Within your consistent percentage of production, you have the freedom to choose multiple contract years, delivery months, and pricing structures. This means that you are able to diversify your risk year-to-year and still adapt to what works best for your farm.
