Trade the Farm

RSS By: Thomas Grisafi,

We trade what you grow!


We Hear You

Feb 12, 2014

I’ve spent much of the last month traveling around Iowa and Illinois meeting with producers and educating them on margins and markets in this challenging agricultural climate.

I’ve come away from all of this hearing many recurring themes:  I should have sold more of my corn last year, I wish I knew more about options, and the always perennial, I should have listened to my wife.

Trade the Farm isn’t here to tell you what you should’ve done, we’re here to help you figure out what you can do now.  We understand your frustration and your anxiety, and we’re here to help show you what you can do about it.

The only way to make the most money farming is to truly understand your cost production and your margins.  We specialize in that and we have some amazing "decision making tools" that are an easy and quick way to help you maximize, understand and analyze your profits.

We’re here to help you be a better marketer of what you are growing. 

I like to challenge my farmers to spend as much time at their desk as they do in their fields.  The most elite farmers in this country barely spend any time in the field anymore; they are at their desk, which is where the money is made.

I will be doing some more traveling this coming week, to Iowa, Illinois, South and North Dakota.  I would love to hear from any of you farmers out there.  Give me a call, let me come and see you. 1-855-737-FARM.  Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to ask for help.

We hear you, I hear you, and I’ll see you soon.
