How’s Your Crop Marketing Going?
I’ve met w/ several growers across the mid-south this past month and from what I’ve seen, yields are good across the board for most growers. Unfortunately, market prices haven’t been where we would like to see them. A lot of growers I’ve talked to are marketing their crops a lot closer than past years so they can squeeze out as much profit as they can this season. We’ve launched some new grain marketing tools for our members including our crop marketing dashboard, which features 4,000+ buyers in your area bidding for your crops. We have also launched our select marketplace and our iHTA (independent hedge to arrive) product. Also, learn more about deferred futures. If you’d like to learn more, please feel free to contact myself or our grain marketing specialist for the mid-south: Kayla McMakin (325) 716-4429, and we’d be more than happy to help!

Schedule an Appointment for Data Collection:
Please feel free to schedule an appointment w/ me, or a member of our team, to assist w/ collecting, cleaning, and uploading your planting, application, and harvest data –this is just another free benefit we provide our members. Keep in mind that there are 60+ data collection brands that have monitors on the market now –and while it might sound complicated, we make it simple… FBN will aggregate all of your data from multiple sources into one, easy to understand, dashboard.

Our Team is Growing! 
As many of you might have already noticed, our team at FBN has grown tremendously the past few months (especially in the mid-south) to keep up with the growth of our network. Believe it or not, but we are still looking for talented entrepreneurs that know the ag industry and aren’t afraid of disrupting the industry by bringing transparency and value to growers.
