This seminar is designed to help grain originators gain a deeper understanding of structured contracts, including how options add flexibility that can benefit both growers and originators.

TOPICS COVERED

  • OPTIONALITY IN CASH CONTRACTS 
    Discussion of how structuring options in cash contracts can offer varying degrees of flexibility for growers to participate in higher prices along with looking at the strength of different position structures and which contracts best compliment various market conditions.
  • CASE STUDIES AND GROUP EXERCISE 
    Comparing results of three structures under separate market paths to review why certain contracting alternatives are more effective than others in different situations. A group exercise will reinforce these concepts in a separate historical marketing scenario.
  • ADVANTAGES OF PROACTIVE CONTRACT MANAGEMENT 
    As market conditions change, so should contract structures. We will review potential strategy adjustments that growers may want to consider and how additional value can be added for both the grower and the originator over the contracting life cycle.
  • GROWER MARGIN MANAGEMENT SIMULATION 
    Integrated online simulation incorporating cash contracts, both firm and flexible, to manage the risk of a grower’s profit margin through a historical market.
Instructed by Commodity Ingredient Hedging and in collaboration FCSA (Farm Credit Services of America).
