Our Grain Advantages Count In Your Favor

We offer four very good reasons to do grain business with Ag Partners. Each advantage grows out of our unique structure. We are the hybrid created by an Iowa cooperative known for being among the first to ship unit trains—but that’s not all. We partnered with a world-class ag company known for its grain marketing savvy. These things combined give us our unique structure.
 
Our customers reap the benefits of all we know and all we are willing to learn. We offer customers innovative risk-management products, marketplace leverage, harvest-season efficiency, and grain operations safety—four very good reasons to do your grain business with Ag Partners.

Contact your local Ag Partners' location or Marketing Service Rep (MSR) to sign up for TEXT BIDS and/or ANNOUNCEMENTS (grain receiving hours, etc.)!

PROPRICING® CONTRACTS
ProPricing contracts are known for helping grain producers take the stress and emotion out of grain marketing and replacing it with discipline and confidence.

Each contract gives you:

  •  Access to industry experts,
  • Automatic execution of your chosen strategies,
  • Timely performance updates, and
  • Flexibility to choose delivery periods.
  • When used consistently and strategically, ProPricing can help you see the kind of return most farmers find difficult to achieve on their own.
Other Ag Partners Risk Management tools
  • Minimum Price Contract—You select a floor price while maintaining upside and hold on to the ability to price at any time.
  • No-Basis-Established (NBE) Contract—Secure a futures prices and delivery period without specifying the basis level.
  • Daily Floor Plus™—Establish your futures reference price by marketing an equal number of bushels daily during a specified period.
  • Focal Point™—When you establish an initial price on a selected futures month and then re-price at a later date, you stay in the market.
  • Pacer™ and Pacer Ultra™—Because the majority of grain is marketed in the bottom one third of the market, Pacer marketing tools guarantee the average price and help you keep pace with volatile marketing factors.
  • Premium Offer—The premium is paid in exchange for a firm offer to sell additional grain for deferred delivery at an established price.
