Grain Contracts

At Cooperative Farmers Elevator, we offer a variety of grain contracts to meet the needs of your operation. click on the buttons below to learn more about each contract, or listen to our grain team explain them in the videos below:

Basis Contract

Allows producer to lock in a forward delivery basis and leave futures open to capture any upward movement.


CFE Averaging Grain Pool

Truly average price contract. We looked at seasonal prices for both corn and soybeans and offer an old crop and new crop pricing structure. Signup bushels for both programs on or before February 8th, 2019. Minimum of 1,000 bushels signup and you are guaranteed to get these bushels sold. Prices a set number of bushels every Friday.


$.02/bushel fee

CFE Bonus Premium

This is a contract that will pay you a bonus on your new crop corn or soybeans when you market them to CFE. The bonus you would receive on your new crop grain when sold would be an additional .25-.40 per bushel on corn and .35-.60 cents per bushel on soybeans. Then you have an additional offer for same bushels versus deferred futures of your choice at levels above current values.


Connections Contract

Complete risk management program. This contract allows you to forward market your grain AND fertilizer all in one. Allowing you to lock in a certain profit margin. This contract protects you from lower grain prices AND higher fertilizer prices.


CFE Insight Program

Allows producers to enroll bushels and have the expertise of one or all four of these Risk Management Companies market bushels on your behalf to diversify risk. This is a guarantee way to get bushels priced. The four risk management companies are Agrivisor, Doane, Pro Farmer and Roach Ag. For more information please see the CFE Insight flyer under the grain document tab to the right.

Extended Price Contract

This contract allows the producer to price his grain at today’s cash price, receive a 70% cash advance, avoid all storage fees and goes long the September 2019 Corn futures and August 2019 Soybean futures. You would take part in futures rally but also still have downside risk. This contract has a .07/maintenance fee.


Forward Contracting

Gives the producer the ability to lock in CFE’s deferred cash grain price.

Flex Floor Advantage

Great tool to completely protect downside price risk, while having unlimited upside potential. Prices on a weekly basis. Set basis anytime. This contract does involve option cost, but typically runs 15% cheaper than regular options.


Hedge to Arrive Contract

Allows the producer to lock in a favorable futures market price with the basis open to capture anticipated basis improvement. HTA fees through Dec 22' of .05/bushel on corn and through Nov 22' of .08/bushel on soybeans. HTA contract fees March 2023 through Dec 23' and Nov 23' of .06/bushel on corn and .09/bushel on soybeans.


Minimum Price Contract

This contract truly does give the producer a minimum price but keeps upside potential open. We buy July 2019 calls either at the money or .20 - .40 out of the money depending on the producer value he wants to spend. Minimum of 5,000 bushels can be settled to this contract. Only cost to producer is the actual call cost and no storage.


Offer Buy

Allows a producer to organize a market strategy with a standing offer to price bushels at a set price during the day or night trade.

Producer Accumulator Contract

Allows the producer to lock in a premium over the current deferred corn or soybean market. An even amount of bushels are priced weekly during the pricing period with a possible double up of bushels. We offer values well above the current market with this contract.
