Production Is Only Half The Battle

Your success as a farmer or rancher depends not just on your ability to produce, but also on how you market what you produce. We can advise you about a variety of futures and options strategies to help you manage risk and give you more control over the price you receive for your grain and livestock.

Who We Serve

Our diverse clientele ranges from hedgers to speculators, beginners to well-seasoned traders, and self-directed to managed accounts. With more than 30 years of industry experience, we seek to provide whatever level of service that you desire, whether it entails gathering and providing information, dispensing trading ideas and advice, or farm marketing consultations.

Who We Are

McReynolds Marketing and Investments is a full-service futures and options brokerage. We take the time to answer your questions, provide guidance, and help you avoid costly mistakes. We clear our trades through ADM Investor Services, a wholly owned subsidiary of Archer Daniels Midland. Clients can register at the ADMIS website to access their account information, charts, quotes, research information, and trading ideas. Also, a free weekly ag market newsletter, The Long & Short of It, is emailed to clients every Friday night. A sample copy is available for you to view.

Grain Market Consulting

McReynolds Marketing and Ag Consulting Services is a fee-based grain market advisory service. Specific marketing advice is individually tailored to your farming operation. Don't like futures? We'll use option strategies. Don't like options either? Then we will stick with cash contracts.

Should you lock in a price ahead of harvest, or set a floor instead? When? How much? When should hedges be lifted? Sell at harvest, or store? These are the kinds of questions we try to answer. Services include numerous phone consultations throughout the year, and you can call in with questions any time using our toll-free number.

Additionally, we provide daily email comments, news, and advice for wheat, feed grains, and soybeans Monday through Thursday with the Grain News Nuggets newsletter, with the Five Minute Market Update coming out on Friday nights to provide an overview of the week and look ahead to what may be coming up. All of our full-service consulting service clients are contacted any time immediate action is warranted. This approach allows you to concentrate on production while we concentrate on how best to market what you produce.

Affordable Fees

Our market consulting fees are less than it costs to store a bushel of grain for one month. The annual fee is 1.5 cents per bushel of expected production, with a minimum of $1,000.00 and a maximum of $3,000.00. If you do not need the individual attention, but want the daily email updates and advice, try our one-year email subscription for just $250.00.
