The cattle business has always been risky. While the risks have changed with the evolution of the industry, you still need careful agricultural risk management to make an operation successful.
Choosing the Right Team
You want a risk management team that has real agricultural experience through career exposure or a farming background. The best team will understand the value of sustainable agriculture and the personal quality of a family-oriented business. Our team in Fort Collins, Colorado, is dedicated to helping the progressive cattle feeding operation manage its risk.
Covering the Bases
A team approach ensures that all the bases of agricultural risk management are covered. The cattle feeding business is global and volatile. You need advice from people who have the latest technology to analyze the markets. Spotting trends in supply and demand helps you respond nimbly and protect your equity.
Creating Individual Strategies
There is no one best strategy to make every cattle operation successful. An individual approach based on personal knowledge of your business will have the greatest impact on your success. You may be in a position where you’re willing to take a riskier line, or you may be especially risk-averse depending on the situation at hand. In either case, you can explore the best combination of futures, spreads, and options that are available to you.
You should also look for a risk management team that aggressively seeks arbitrage and margin opportunities. These opportunities may arise and vanish quickly. A good team is able to alert you to these strategies in a time frame that allows you to take advantage of them.
