Premium Offer

Boost Your Bottom Line

Looking for a way to boost prices? Need to establish a marketing plan? Cargill Premium Offer does both. It pays you a premium for your grain above and beyond the cash price. The premium is paid in exchange for a firm offer to sell additional grain for deferred delivery at an established price.

When Is it Used?

Premium Offer should be considered anytime you want to enhance your grain price while at the same time establish a firm offer to sell additional grain for deferred delivery. Offers can be made when selling new crop, or old. The offer will enforce a scale-up marketing discipline to take advantage of potential market rallies.

What are the advantages of the Premium Offer contract?
  • Allows you to capture a premium on grain
  • You choose the firm offer price and pricing date for the firm offer
  • You have no obligation to deliver the grain on firm offer if futures close below the firm offer price on the pricing date
  • You may set the basis for the firm offer on the day of writing the contract or any date prior to the firm offer pricing date (local policies may vary)
  • Setting a firm offer can be a critical piece of a marketing plan
Additional Features

Daily Floor Plus

Price, Participate and Protect

If you want the chance to sell priced bushels above today’s current market, and still have an established guaranteed minimum futures floor price, the Daily Floor Plus contract may be the right choice for you.

When Is it Used?

The Daily Floor Plus contract establishes your futures reference price by pricing an equal portion of your bushels every day during a specified pricing period at a Plus Price, which is often above today’s current market. If the market price for the futures reference month trades at or below a Trigger Price, any remaining bushels will be priced at a guaranteed minimum Floor Price. In exchange for this pricing, you agree to a conditional firm offer for a like quantity. Your conditional offer will automatically be cancelled if the Trigger Price trades.

What are the advantages of the Daily Floor Plus contract?
  • On the first day of the pricing period you will sell priced bushels at an attractive level
  • Provides a plan with a guaranteed minimum if the market drops
  • Reduces stress, frustration, and risk in marketing grain
