Grain Outlook Broadcasts for CHS Producers- July 14th

CHS Income

Join us Tuesday July 14th for two different grain market outlook broadcasts via Skype. In light of current social distancing protocols and the inability to hold in-person meetings, CHS wants to continue to bring up to date information to our producers in a safe and timely manner.

You can join this Market Outlook broadcast with your computer, tablet, or your phone. There will be slide decks, however you can simply choose to just listen in if that’s more convenient for you. You’ll be able to ask questions through a chat box during the broadcast or at the end of the presentations.

The first broadcast at 10:00 A.M. will focus on corn and soybeans. Chris Stringer and Justin Friesz, Senior Grain Merchandisers from CHS Global Grain Marketing will share their perspectives on the current markets, the USDA July crop production and supply/demand report, planted acreage, and more.

Our second broadcast at 12:00 P.M. will focus on wheat. Bruce Weber CHS Global Grain Marketing will share his insight and discuss all things related to wheat markets.
