You've invested in developing your expertise, and you put that training to good use.
You go beyond standard grain contracts and instead use options and alternative marketing strategies to improve your price. You may even have a brokerage account. Marketing Masters know there’s more price risk when they’re deep into the market, but they also know that there’s more opportunity for greater reward.
Marketing Masters tend to be well informed. You likely draw marketing information from many different sources, but you can sometimes suffer from “analysis paralysis.” Marketing Masters are more productive when they can talk through the data with someone else to better ground their bias.
Marketing Masters feel confident when it comes to grain marketing, but that attitude can sometimes get them into trouble. They don’t think they need help, so they don’t often seek a second opinion. As a result, they may take on unnecessary risk or miss out on a better sales strategy.
If you can relate to the Marketing Master, consider a program like Cargill MarketGuide™. It lets you collaborate with a team of experts who can elevate your grain marketing strategies.
