New GrainCents Expert Gives Your Grain Marketing More Punch

It’s hard to believe that just three months ago we launched GrainCents to help farmers be better at grain marketing!

We have been working hard, generating hundreds of stories to keep you up to date on changes in the grain markets as it relates to your specific crop and helping you make more sense of grain markets!

Our goal has always been to help you make better grain marketing decisions in this convoluted market. So far we have produced an amazing success rate of 93%, providing you with accurate grain marketing calls again and again.

We want you to maximize the benefits of GrainCents so let’s talk about a few new things we have on the horizon that are going to help your grain marketing decisions.


GrainCents Weekly Digest Email

You may have noticed on our GrainCents Twitter feed these past few weeks that we have been publishing Weekly Grain Marketing Digests.

These are weekly grain marketing newsletters / round-ups for each crop that are sent out to GrainCents subscribers every Sunday, around 8 a.m. EST. They include the following for each specific crop:

1. A summary of the global market trends that past week;
2. Unique FarmLead Marketplace cash market data points;
3. What we’re expecting for that crop’s price moving forward;
4. A reiteration of our cash grain sales position; and
5. A compiled list of our two cents on the major factors affecting your crop.

This is a simple and convenient way to skim the top takeaways affecting your farm’s grain prices and to prepare you for the week ahead. We want to make this as easy as possible for you because we know how busy you are!
