Ashley Bettenhausen (@TheFarmWifey) joins the guys all the way from up north to share her trials and triumphs as a female grain originator from a non-ag background. And of course, she sets the record straight on just exactly how proper spread terminology do.

 

Today, we delve into the policies and contracts that haven’t had a great year (namely rolling basis contracts) and how to improve them in the future. We also get into some of the popular contracts for new crop and which ones you should be tweaking, eliminating, improving, or promoting in the current environment.

Market Makers

Many of us in the grain business know that one of the functions of the futures market is price discovery. Lesser known, however, is that price discovery is also a function of the astute grain merchandiser. In this episode we shed some light on how the country elevator can make markets both upstream for the farmer and downstream for the end user, all while getting paid for doing so.

The guys sit down with Blake Early, founder and CEO of Agrihound to discuss the peculiar particularities of the interactions between farmer and buyer. If you'd like to learn more about Blake, his company or his grain contract education platform, we invite you to check out his website at agrihound.com.

Today's guest is Damian Mason, a businessman, agriculturist, and host of The Business of Agriculture Podcast.  He was a guest speaker at White Commercial's 2019 Master Management Conference for grain elevators.  He sits down with us to discuss marketing from the perspective of grain elevator business owner  This episode is fast and fun!
