Commodity Marketing and Consulting
Ag Business Specialists offers unique marketing plans with
each individual producer in mind. Choose between a
global market plan for your entire farm or a more cash-oriented
market plan for a specific quantity of bushels.
Regardless of the plan, we will advise with cash sales,
commodity hedging using futures and options, and with
multiple strategies that are used in risk management.
The relationship between a cash sale and a futures or
option position can sometimes be overwhelming.
Therefore, the central theme of our marketing strategies
is the education of the client as we believe that an
educated client is an informed and confident client.

A broker assisted account is an account whose owner
retains full control over all trading decisions made in the
account and at the same time has the full attention of a

accounts are especially appropriate if you don't have the
time to follow the markets as closely as you would like,
are new to futures trading or simply want professional
guidance in your trading decisions.
Not only does Ag Business Specialists have many knowledgeable brokers to assist you, but we also have access to the research and data provided by our carrying broker, ADM Investor Services, Inc.
