About Top Third Ag Marketing
Our Top Third Goal
Top Third’s goal is to help you market your products in the “top third” of prices that were available to you during the marketing year. Our name is our goal…and yours! We will look for opportunities in:
- Making timely cash sales
- Buying fair-valued protection options
- Making basis trades
- Crop insurance
Top Third on Risk
The bedrock principles of my risk management program are:
- NO SPECULATING
- NO MARGIN CALLS, when purchasing options
- Managing risk while maximizing marketing opportunities
Using my 30 years of experience as a professional trader and risk manager, I will help you determine which option can best help you manage risk. In addition, we will determine price levels for you to sell cash grain to take advantage of rallies in the cash market. We will help you stay focused and disciplined to minimize the emotional feelings that can cloud risk management decisions.
