Dealers ‘Bagging’ Temporary Grain Storage Sales

The September 2018 World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) report released on Sept. 12 pushed corn prices down lower with futures down more than 3.5%. According to Farm Futures, larger-than-expected yield estimates and other bearish data pushed futures down nearly 4%. September futures dropped 13.75 cents to $3.4150, while December futures fell 14.25 cents to $3.5250. These conditions make temporary grain storage, like bagging grain, a good option for farmers.

  • September 2018 Tractor & Combine Analysis

    The limited cash available to farmers and ranchers in the U.S. will continue to put a dampener on the equipment markets in 2018 and 2019. The expanded depreciation programs that appeared in 2010 and reached its zenith in 2014 had the effect of pulling ahead purchases from future years. We are now enduring the results of that program.
  • Balancing High Performance & Family Culture

    Shaping the culture of a dealership is a complicated thing. Anyone who's ever tried to lead an organization after a major transition or change knows this. The culture of your dealership is at the heart of what can drive you to be successful, mediocre or out of business.
