Total Farm Marketing market advisor John Heinberg says the spike in commodity prices will mean farmers can ““ensure”” a profit going into spring. “At the same time, we’re watching the USDA Outlook numbers as they come out.” Heinberg reminds farmers to lock in some of these profits. “We’re in uncharted territory. New crop December corn, only in 2011 were we at these price levels this time of year. Producers need to stay disciplined in some things, set some targets, don’t do the “what if” mentality. Take the value and then look at ways you can manage that risk.”
