Episode 195: "Grain & Cattle Marketing Update” w/David Derwin

In this week’s episode, Tracy speaks to David Derwin in our “Grain & Cattle Marketing Update.”

It’s hard to know what to do when markets are going down, and often just as challenging to know the best thing to do when markets are trending up. But as we all know, markets go up and down, so David shares a few insights about what producers can do about it in today’s episode.
  • When is the best time to market your grain? Do you wait until…seed is in the ground? Wait until it starts to grow? Wait until it's in the bin? Or wait until the fall time. But why wait?
  • There seem to be a lot of reasons not to price your grain. David shares his thoughts on these concerns.
  • There's also a big reason why you should protect your grain: your revenues. Don’t miss this one.
  • How do you protect crops without futures & options like durum, barley, peas, lentils, etc.?
  • What about the cattle market?
Don’t miss this week’s episode, where we chat about all things grain and cattle marketing.
