How Much Will You Get for Your Wheat?

As we near the end of 2015, wheat acres have been assigned and planted. We encourage you to keep one thing in mind - PROFIT. After a harsh crop year of unpredictable weather and fluctuating market prices, MB is providing an excellent wheat basis for you right now. Locking in a higher basis gives you the opportunity to eliminate your basis risk and only expose yourself to market price risk. Looking at historical data, basis tends to decrease as major harvest dates near. Locking in our basis means you can confidently sell your wheat at a price that fits your marketing program. Contact your local grain buyer about locking in your high wheat basis today!

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!
