I’m a big believer in data-driven research and marketing plans. The longer I do this the more I realize nobody knows what the market is going to do. The best way to get a grasp for what could happen is to pay attention to the undercurrents of each component of supply and demand. For example, instead of looking at corn usage for ethanol we look at the factors for ethanol producers’ profitability. Taking it a step further we drill into DDG supply and demand by analyzing prices for competing feedstuff. Because of this we are generally able to identify a trend before it occurs and can then apply that to the market and be proactive rather than reactive.

For cattle and beef producers I firmly believe in managing the margin for each individual lot. I take a systematic rule-based approach to cattle marketing that I use myself with my own cattle.
