Leveraging Unbiased Tools to Help Producers

We focus on helping crop producers identify forward profit margins up to 18 months out, while proactively managing commodity price risk throughout multiple crop years.

CIH leverages unbiased tools and expertise to help producers develop strategies for:

  • When and how to establish a forward strategy
  • Adjust positions as grain market moves
  • creating “what-if” scenarios for evaluating adjustments in pricing, basis, etc.
  • CIH helps crop producers get a comprehensive view of current margins while identifying opportunities to improve risk posture and protect profitability several quarters out. The approach is tailored to your actual operations, cost structure, inventories, contracting, physical deliveries, etc., which allows us to develop a focused plan to target favorable margins regardless of what happens in the marketplace. Our clients have standing one-hour calls every week where we review markets, positions, and any needed adjustments to strategy.

    All CIH clients have unlimited access to an easy-to-use, secure website that showcases an updated, accurate picture of your forward margins and a customized model of your operation’s actual costs & revenues that is invaluable for quickly evaluating buy & sell decisions.
