Our Market Analysts provide a clear understanding of the current market situation and advice on when to sell and why. Farmers rely on professional services to provide decades worth of analytical experience to their farm business in order to maximize profitability and minimize marketing risks.
While measuring risks and opportunities in the agricultural commodity markets, our team evaluates variables that determine the price of particular commodities. These variables can be directly related to the commodity – production, demand, imports, exports, ending stocks – or be broader macroeconomic or geopolitical factors.
FarmLink Analysts use a disciplined analytical approach that focuses on performance. Our approach has a proven track record of our customers experiencing selling prices in the top range of opportunities for that crop throughout the crop year.
The approach our Market Analysts use is based on testing hypothesis and challenging assumptions. FarmLink wants our farmers to succeed – since we are not affiliated with any buyers, our analytical team can assess markets in an objective manner and offer independent advice. This independence and alignment of interests is of tremendous value.

Hedging is a risk management tool that helps protect your farm operation from volatile grain markets. It reduces the chance that your grain will lose value when prices fall.
Hedging Education offers training for farmers interested in incorporating hedging with futures and options to their grain marketing toolbox.
We create value for farmers through professional training videos and presentations as well as ongoing hedging recommendations and commentary over the course of the marketing year. Our hedging experts help farmers navigate market highs and lows to ensure the success of their farm business.
Most programs begin and end with the ‘education’ piece. However, for many growers, there is a gap between what is learned in the classroom and knowing how to implement the training on their farms as conditions change in the market.
Hedging Education offers ongoing support through written updates and access to a professional grain Marketing Advisor, providing growers with coaching in real-time. Our farmers are able to incorporate these strategies into their marketing and risk management plans with confidence.
To manage risk and secure returns, farmers need to use all of the tools at their disposal - futures and options can be an efficient way to do this. Farmers that effectively incorporate Hedging Education strategies better position themselves to endure whatever the market throws at them in the seasons ahead.
