Corn+Soybean Digest

Focus on production, not markets

Focus on production, not markets
Think Different Steven Albracht knows he can produce bin-busting corn yields that hit at least 300 bushels regularly. Production like that takes a lot of time, hours and days he can’t spend on marketing. Instead, he trusts a grain trader with professional staff monitoring markets 24/7. Albracht can focus more on making the big numbers rise on the combine yield monitor and less on whether he’s missing an extra 25 cents a bushel in sales.

To say the least, Steven Albracht is a high-intensity corn farmer. He is disappointed if yields don’t top 300 bushels per acre. But even with gargantuan yields, he must market wisely to help pocket a good return and prevent strangling from high production costs.
