“Where Farm and Family Meet”

Growers Edge (www.growersedge.com) offers a free cash bid service for farmers to locate the best net cash grain prices within 100 miles of their farms.

By comparing their local elevator price with all surrounding elevators, ethanol plants and grain terminals, users of this free service report making 20 to 40 cents more per bushel by shopping for the best market price. “Our farmer-users asked for a way to find the best net local bid for their crops,” said Craig Mouchka, president of Growers Edge. “Farmers normally check three or four of their closest markets and they can easily miss their best cash price.
