Ag Watch Grain Commentary
Stay informed on what is happening in the grain market with the On The Money grain comments. We will keep you in the know regarding our price projections for corn, soybeans and wheat. Whenever a projection is made, a specific date is given as to when a top or bottom is expected to occur. Included in our grain commentary are seasonal trends, comments regarding USDA reports, and issues impacting the markets. We also tell you the percentage odds as to whether prices will be higher or lower next week, as well as for next month. Recommendations for cash sales are given through our updates and percent of the crop that is to be sold. Our updates are sent by e-mail shortly after 6:00 a.m.CST so that you have them before you leave for the field. If pressing news develops during the trading session, an analysis will be included in a p.m. wrap up. This is a no spin commentary for those wanting to cut to the chase.
Ag Watch Annual Subscription: $300
Just like the name implies. We are not involved in your marketing plan nor offer direct consultation. This service is primarily for producers who call their own shots but would like to retain us for periodic consultation. Maybe an option or futures strategy has been recommended, and an unbiased opinion is needed. Should I lock in the basis or consider a hedge-to-arrive contract? We will answer these questions for you. You will be kept in the know from our weekly commentary and updates on how to handle your marketing decisions. If you need more than a market newsletter, and only occasional help from a consultant, then this service is for you.
Ag Watch Fee: $800 annually
This is a little of both worlds. We provide you with direct consultation, render advice on your specific situation, but leave the calls up to you.

This level of service includes opinions regarding USDA reports, outlook on cash markets, timing of sales, plus an individualized marketing plan.
