Floor Contracts

Protect yourself from volatile markets. Capture upside potential.

Set a minimum price to market your grain with confidence.

Floor contracts are a good strategy to protect yourself from market volatility with a guaranteed minimum futures price — also known as a floor. If you’re bearish about the market, you can combine floor contracts with other market strategies to protect your bottom line while still giving yourself the opportunity to capture upside market potential.
