Corn, soybean marketing programs helps grower take advantage of sell signals

Think Different Michael Slack is taking a more diversified approach to getting his corn and soybeans marketed. He&rsquo;s leaning on two separate entities: one for its advice and the other for grain contracting programs. One segment pools grain with other bushels to demand a better price from big buyers, while the other offers the Kansas grower periodic sell-period notifications.

Michael Slack hopes one old and one new marketing program will help him bolster still-weak corn and soybean sales heading into 2015. He’s searching for a soft landing after being caught between a weather-related rock and a hard place.
