It’s a New Year, time to put the past year behind us and look forward to the opportunities ahead.

Why not start the New Year out on the right foot? Let Top Third help you by offering TWO ways to get started.

FIRST, sign up to receive the Top Third nightly email. This mail is sent to our clients, ag bankers, and industry professionals to keep them informed of the marketing opportunities ahead. We provide this free of charge to our clients. Just click to sign up for a FREE 30 day trial (no obligation).

Second, just pick up the phone and talk to me or one of my experienced risk managers. We talk about the risk you face in 2016 and how to protect yourself from those risks. Just call 877-884-3343 and ask to speak to a Top Third risk manager. This is a toll-free, no obligation call.

I know that many of you have spoken with your banker regarding the necessity of a marketing plan for your crops. There have been years when ignoring the marketing has paid off. However, the gains made in those years have rarely, if ever, offset the losses in those years when marketing could have maintained great profitability.

In 2016, we are still confronted with large worldwide carryouts that could increase if there are no major weather threats around the world. Without any of the threats coming to fruition, American farmers could face another year of cheap prices and minimal profitability.

We do know that in every year since 1972 there has been at least one opportunity to market grain at profitable levels. At Top Third, we believe the American farmer must be prepared for that opportunity by having a market plan in place today to help you take advantage of whatever comes tomorrow.

We look forward to helping you manage risk in 2016.
