Volatility in the Markets
Because of the volatility in all the grain markets, we will buy grain only when the markets are open and trading, 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Contracting new crop grains require 5,000 bushel increments. All prices quoted are per bushel. Prices are updated on a 10 minute delay with the futures. Be sure to refresh your screen. No grain can be purchased or sold via internet. We also purchase sunflowers. Please call to confirm prices at:

Ulysses (620) 356-1219 or (800) 242-9754

Due to changes in the CBOT and KCBOT trading hours, we will be buying grain from 8:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. each day. The Day Session for both Boards of Trade is now open from 8:30 a.m. until 1:15 p.m. each day.
