Harvest your corn early - we're ready

Harvest is underway.  Those who are willing to get started early will be paid off in a big way.  MBgrain pays more for Aug delivered bushels, but more importantly research shows your yields will be higher early on.  The premium paid for early bushels along with the increase in yield/acre more than offsets any drying fee you may incur.  Plus, getting the corn out of the field early allows you to worry less about the next storm and gets you paid quicker!  Read this article from Helena Chemical Company Josh Gaddy for more information on early harvest or call your MBgrain / SGC buyer today.  Good luck this crop season, we hope to see you soon!

Cover your “Basis”

More and more farmers are taking advantage of our Basis only contract offer.  At any time between now and delivery of your crop, you can lock the Basis portion of your total price per bushel (Basis + Futures = Total Price per bushel).

Futures prices fluctuate for many reasons - weather, speculation, supply/demand, etc.  Basis contracts allow you to harvest and deliver your crop, and wait to price the futures when you are ready.   You set the bushels and delivery period, we lock in the basis, you deliver the grain, and then call us when you’re ready to price the futures – you have 1 year to price.

Call us today to learn more about this offer.
