In this program, SFM becomes the marketing manager for the farm operation. This includes working on all aspects of grain marketing as directed by the farm owner or operator.

Areas of responsibility include developing a merchandising plan, recommending merchandising actions and carrying out those approved by the farmer, recommending futures price levels for final sales of grain based on research, making the grain sales to the grain elevator, developing strategies for maintaining pricing rights, and responding to any and all requests by the farm owner or operator for market research or market information.

In addition, these clients receive all market letters and written marketing strategies. Computer spreadsheets for some marketing strategies and merchandising questions are available and can be used to quickly evaluate the strategies’ value to the farm business. These farm owners or operators have toll free phone access to Strategic Farm Marketing’s personnel.
