Sales Program

FlexiTen is a non-restrictive mandated pool, designed to capture premiums when they present themselves. If marketing opportunities arise to protect basis and to reduce pool costs, Flexi Grain may consider protecting price through forward sales. Derivatives such as futures and options can also be used to manage risk. Pre-harvest sales can take place (demonstrated in the below chart) when the pool manager sees it as optimal price risk management.
