Why you need The Wilkins Ag Wire
The Markets Have Changed
The grain markets are evolving. The days of printing a $1.00-$2.00 move in a marketing year are done. Just look at the chart below!
As you can see, volatility in the grain markets is here, and it’s here to stay. Pushing your grain marketing to the side might have worked in the past, but it gets riskier by the day. It has never been more important to implement a solid grain marketing plan into your farming operation.
The Players Have Changed
Institutional investors have entered the marketplace, and with them comes money flow. It can build these markets up, but it can also bring them down. The past few years have provided great opportunities to make fantastic sales. They have also provided opportunities to get left in the dust and being forced to sell your grain for much less than you anticipated.
The average farmer spends countless hours planting, caring for, and harvesting their crop. Marketing is often pushed aside due to you making sure that you actually have something to sell! That’s where The Wilkins Ag Wire comes in. I put in the work to make sure that you have the best information and ideas I can provide.
The Wilkins Ag Wire is focused on providing the best information and ideas for today’s producers. At the end of the day, my goal is for you to say, “The Wilkins Ag Wire makes me a better farmer due to increased awareness on what is moving the market by providing hedging ideas and an outlook on where the grain markets are headed.”

About the Author
Drew Wilkins grew up in Northwest Arkansas and has been familiar with agriculture for his whole life. His passion for row crop agriculture came when he started pursuing a degree in Agricultural Business from the University of Arkansas. During his time at the U of A, he enrolled in a futures and options class. His passion for the markets started to develop in the class and he eventually took part in a Spring Broker Training Internship with one of the largest clearing firms in the world. The internship was all he needed to realize that he belonged in the commodity markets. Drew moved up to Chicago three weeks after graduating from college and began a career as a broker with Daniels Trading. His grain and market knowledge continued to expand due to the firm’s strong background in the ag markets. After helping numerous clients develop grain and livestock marketing plans over the years, Drew decided it would be best to put his thoughts and ideas out in a more efficient manner. The Wilkins Ag Wire is the result of that decision. He hopes that this newsletter will challenge the way you look at your grain marketing and help you effectively become a better, more efficient farmer. After all, The Wilkins Ag Wire’s motto is “Helping today’s farmer make more informed marketing decisions.”
