Welcome to our website! *Thursday: 12/08/2016: **FREEZE: If you like to freeze your on farm stored grain, next week looks like the week to do that! If you would like to know what we do, give us a call. Be glad to tell you what has worked for us in the past. 219-279-2115 *GRAIN ON THE FARM: Whether grain on the farm is picked up by us or delivered by you, usually, carries a better basis than what is posted here on our website! Give us a call so we can do the leg work in finding you that better bid. *Merchant Plus Program: will be available for this 2017 crop year! This program is: open to all of our Producer's, it is strictly on a volunteer basis, it gives the Producer a chance to get some forward contracting done, it does not guarantee the high in the market's, and like any contracting, there are risks involved! This is strictly a marketing service tool for you, the Producer, to help you market some of your grain. *Marketing Meeting: if enough Producer's are interested, we would be glad to schedule a marketing meeting! Looking at sometime in the middle of December since the deadline for the Merchant Plus Program is around that time! LET US KNOW! *Market's struggling in front of a report, which comes tomorrow at noon, USDA 2016/17 Carryout, USDA 2016/17 Global Carryout and also SA Production. Corn held firm on the strength in the wheat market but that tune changed not long after the morning bell when corn just couldn't continue to turn a blind eye to the weakness in the bean complex. Little is expected in the corn market tomorrow to come out of the report. SA production will probably be the key factor in any movement in tomorrows trade. The bean complex took a hit when President elect Trump picked Oklahoma's Attorney General, Scott Pruitt, to lead the EPA. Bundle up as our weather temps are going to change dramatically in the coming days and maybe some snow along with it? After the close, we have: March corn futuresdown4-1/2 at $3.53-1/2 2017 December corn futures down 3-3/4 at $3.83-1/4 January bean futures down 22 at $10.27 2017 November bean futures down 19 at $10.13 THANKS for joining us here on the web! *HOLIDAY CLOSINGS: CHRISTMAS: CLOSED, Dec. 24th, 25th and 26th, Saturday, Sunday and Monday NEW YEARS: CLOSED, Dec. 31st, Jan. 1 and Jan. 2, Saturday, Sunday and Monday *UPCOMING CROP REPORTS: December 9: USDA Crop Production and S&D January 12: Crop Production/S&D (monthly) Crop Production (2016 Annual Summary) Winter Wheat Seedings Quarterly Grain Stocks - Dec. 1 February 9: Crop Production/S&D March 9: Crop Production/S&D March 31: 2017 Prospective Plantings Quarterly Stocks - March 1 **NOTICE: The Farmers Cooperative Company, Wolcott, IN, will ONLY accept European Union and Chinese Regulatory System approved varieties of grain, unless grower has received written approval from The Farmers Cooperative Company, Wolcott, IN, to deliver non-approval grain.
