Sign up: Learn a better way to hedge for free
Attention Corn & Soybean Producers:
Feel free to inquire on learning about the best way to hedge. In my opinion my strategy is the best I have seen since I became a member in 1976 trading corn and soybeans for my own account.
Are you tired of listening to the same BULL ****, and services that do not have a plan if the market goes down instead? Hedge means to take risk off the table, and my service has all producers 100% hedged and they do have most of the upside unhedged (if we can rally for whatever reason).

Survey Procedures: The grain stocks estimates in this report are based on
surveys conducted during the first two weeks of June. Separate surveys are
conducted to obtain the on-farm and off-farm estimates. The on-farm stocks
survey is a probability survey that includes a sample of over 70,000 farm
operators selected from a list of producers that ensures all operations in
the United States have a chance to be selected. These producers are asked to
provide the total quantities of grain stored on their operations as of June
1, 2015. This includes all whole grains and oilseeds stored whether for feed,
seed, or sale as well as any stored under a government program.
The off-farm stocks survey is an enumeration of all known commercial grain
storage facilities. This includes approximately 8,700 facilities with
10.7 billion bushels of storage capacity. An effort is made to obtain a
report from all facilities. Reports of stock holdings are normally received
from operations covering about 90 percent of the capacity. Estimates are made
for missing facilities to make the survey complete.
Estimation Procedures: On-farm and off-farm survey data are reviewed at the
State and National levels for reasonableness, consistency with historical
estimates, and current crop size. After estimates are made for on-farm and
off-farm stocks, the totals of these two are combined and evaluated using the
balance sheet approach. This method utilizes other sources of data to check
the reasonableness of the stocks estimates. Estimates of production, imports,
exports, crushings, millings, and all other recorded uses of grains and
oilseeds are reviewed to make sure beginning stocks, production, utilization,
and ending stocks are within reasonable balance and present the best possible
estimate of stocks.
Revision Policy: On-farm and off-farm stocks are subject to revision the
quarter following initial publication and again in the following December 1
Grain Stocks report published in January each year. Revisions can be made
when late reports are received, errors are detected in reporting and
calculations, and production estimates are revised. Estimates will also be
reviewed following the 5-year Census of Agriculture. No revisions to these
years will be made after that date.
Reliability: Reliability of the on-farm and off-farm stocks must be treated
separately because the survey designs for the two surveys are very different.
The on-farm stocks estimates are subject to sampling variability because all
operations holding on-farm stocks are not included in the sample. This
variability, as measured by the relative standard error at the United States
level, is approximately 2.7 percent for corn, 3.5 percent for soybeans, and
5.0 percent for all wheat. This means that chances are approximately 95 out
of 100 that survey estimates for stocks will be within plus or minus
5.4 percent for corn, 7.0 percent for soybeans, and 10.0 percent for all
wheat of the value that could be developed by averaging the estimates
produced from all possible samples selected from the same population and
surveyed using the same procedures. The relative standard errors for sorghum,
barley, and oats are 16.8, 8.7, and 11.9 percent, respectively.
Survey indications are also subject to non-sampling errors such as omission,
duplication, imputation for missing data, and mistakes in reporting,
recording, and processing the data. Off-farm, as well as on-farm stocks, are
subject to these types of errors. These errors cannot be measured directly,
but they are minimized through rigid quality controls in the data collection
process and a careful review of all reported data for consistency and
