Who Needs Vegas!

Who needs Vegas?  Well, actually, I have been feeling like a vacation lately, so maybe I would like to venture off to Vegas, but I don't need to travel there to get the feeling of beating the odds.  I can get that feeling all year long when it comes to marketing our commodities - corn, soybeans and hogs.

One way I educate myself and try to get a better handle on the markets is by participating in my local Women's Marketing Club.  At our monthly meetings (during the winter and summer months) we discuss USDA reports, trends, outlook from Extension and have guest speakers.  I always learn something new to bring home to share with My Farmer and I enjoy the fellowship with the other women.


My Women's Marketing Club met today and what I really enjoyed discussing at the session was crop insurance and hearing from one of the local ethanol plant's grain buyers explain their available grain contracts, including walking through a Hedge To Arrive contract.
