DON'T GIVE AWAY YOUR CORN With markets continuing to trend down, we encourage you to lock in your minimum price. Lock in what you need and protect the upside with an option. Don’t give away your corn. If you have to sell your corn, spend a little money on an option, leaving room for the upside potential. If you’re storing your corn at home, don’t let it devalue, we can lock in the futures for next summer and buy an option. You can’t lose more than you invest in the option, leaving the upside potential. Please call Greg Boldt, 507-864-7733, if you have questions. We're here to help you understand your options.
STORAGE SPACE AVAILABLE FCE has grain services for all your needs — storage, competitive drying rates and marketing programs. A new bin at Spring Grove has sped up receiving there. The new bins at Rushford South Fork continue to take pressure off our feed and grain facility in downtown Rushford. We still have some space available, so give us a call at 507-864-7733 to learn more about your contract and storage options.
ORDER SEEDS NOW Order now to make sure you have the seed that will work best in your fields when planting season rolls around. FCE is once again offering pre-pay discounts on seed ordered by 12/31. Call your agronomist or an agronomy location (Rushford, Houston, Spring Grove) for pricing and discounts.
Post-holiday leftovers leave us with a number of choices, some not as
