The CRC grain marketing team invited Chad Richey from Midco Commodities to give a presentation on the market outlook for 2018 on December 12, 2017. Approximately 60 producers attended the meetings in Sleepy Eye, Fairfax and Buffalo Lake. Chad spread light on why the 2017 market gave producers such a tough time getting a good price as well as the potential opportunities we may see in 2018. Details were also explained on the new grain marketing program called Insight through AgriVisor and their partners. The Insight program is another tool you can use to secure a portion of your 2018 or 2019 bushels to help mitigate volatility in the grain market. Experts from 4 different marketing firms are available to provide commentary and market information to you. You can choose how many bushels you want to commit (minimum 1,000 bushels) and which firm(s) you want to help you mitigate risk in marketing your crops and hopefully get the best price.
