Farm Size Increase Doesn't Guarantee More Profit

by Water Street Solutions February 25, 2011

Marketing + Discipline Seminar at Commodity Classic

by Water Street Solutions February 9, 2011

OlCClogo It's easy to let your emotions take over when you're trying to market that crop that's your whole shot at profit for the year....especially when prices are where they are right now.  In times like these, it's critical for farmers to understand the factors involved and make management decisions with all of the information available.  Good financial management is more than knowing the fundamental factors that are affecting the trade.  It's important to understand where risk lies, and how to manage it.  If you're planning to attend Commodity Classic, be sure to spend your Friday afternoon with Max Armstrong, Arlan Suderman and Darren Frye.
