Making the Best of a Tough Market

Corn and soybeans are still the biggest revenue-generators for farmers in southern Indiana and northern Kentucky. Even though we have more ways than ever to market that grain, including soy biodiesel, corn ethanol, feeding livestock and even making bourbon, it still takes a sharp pencil to make a profit today.

That’s why the grain team at Superior Ag stands ready to help you make the best marketing decisions possible, given your individual circumstances. Do you need to sell into the cash market right out of the field? Can you store some or all of your grain on-farm? Does drying and storing your grain with us make sense? Are prices likely to trend higher anytime soon?

Our goal at Superior Ag is to grow our business through enhancing our current and future relationships with producers. In order to reach our goals, our focus is to help producers reach their goals. Grain marketing is a challenge that every producer faces, and we are here to take some of the pressure off in grain marketing decisions. We achieve this through disciplined grain marketing plans, striving to ensure that grain is sold at prices that cover expenses during difficult marketing seasons and also capture opportunities when prices are higher. Please call us today and set up some time for us to review your grain marketing plan.
