A CHS Pro Advantage contract provides a simple, seamless way to diversify your crop marketing while benefiting from professional pricing. It’s especially important to allow trading experts to price for you during times of volatile or low-priced commodity markets. Our team has a track record of success-we outperformed the competition’s corn prices by 1.7 percent and surpassed soybean prices by 10.5 percent.
How does it work?
CHS Pro Advantage allows a grower of corn, soybeans or wheat to pledge a specific quantity of bushels for a grower-defined delivery destination. These bushels would be priced by the commodity professionals at CHS Hedging/Russell Consulting Group over a specific period of time.
The settlement price to the grower will be based on the performance of the futures and options hedges traded by our commodity professionals.
