If you've ever worked with an agronomist on a spraying decision or with a consultant on nutritional choices for your herd, you know what it's like to think through how complex information and interactions could affect the quality of your crops and livestock. As you work through the decision with your consultant, the best route - based on the information available - can emerge more clearly from the conversation.
A good relationship with a market advisor is like that. At the core, it's a partnership - focused around the needs of the farming operation and the working style of the farmer. It means regular communication to discuss what's going on in the wider world - and how that could affect your operation. It means important decisions stay in front of you - even during your busiest times. It means a tailored plan that fits with the goals of your farm. It means gaining a different perspective.
Throughout the relationship, the farmer continues gaining market education - growing in understanding of what moves the market and the tools that are available to help manage plans. With greater knowledge, a farmer is well-equipped to discuss: What does this new market information mean for my farm? How does it fit with my goals for my operation? What's the plan if something changes?
Our approach to navigating the markets is to combine an understanding of our client’s unique business situation (financials, logistics, crop insurance, etc) and applying tailored communication that provides education & guidance. We integrate that understanding into developing dynamic market plans to account for farm priorities and utilize technology that allows our clients to visualize how the moving pieces of the farm business come together.
What we have found from this approach is increased confidence for the farm leader - and ultimately, the ability to execute confident, well-informed decisions for the farm.
