Improve marketing confidence One-on-one

Roach Ag offers a personalized service for farmers who would like a simple, easy to follow yet highly personalized marketing plan. Our customers tell us that their close relationship with our trusted professionals helps them make smarter, more profitable and less stressful decisions.

Our Ag Consultants work with each of their customers to design a comprehensive, yet flexible, marketing plan for their farm business. Our consulting service is designed for medium to large farming operations where the logistical and operations aspect of farming consumes large amount of time. Our service focuses on direct assistance with cash grain marketing strategies and decisions. Simply put, we help you decide when to make sales to the buyers you trust while working along a plan assembled by our Advisor and customer.

Roach Ag Marketing also provides full-service hedging and trading for those customers who use futures and options to manage price risk. The Roach Ag system can link the careful purchase or selling of futures and options in conjunction with our Sell Signals. End users work with Roach Ag Buy Signals to help manage upside price risk as well. If you have interest or questions, give us a call.

Merchandising Workshops

We are frequently invited to conduct seminars to help farmers better handle markets, which are sponsored by businesses like Farm Credit, agricultural banks, elevators, university extensions, community colleges, farm business associations and farm management companies. Our workshops cover complicated economic issues in a simple, easy to understand graphic presentation.

During our presentations, we encourage attendees to ask questions as they come up, which normally results in a lively discussion. We will lay out our method of determining when to make sales using case studies of past years. Farmers walk away from our workshops with a much clearer understanding of the current market outlook and a plan that helps them take the right actions for their farm.

Each participant will understand and learn to develop a basic marketing plan linked to our proven Roach Ag Sell Signal feature. With this knowledge, a participant can make more profitable marketing decisions and ease the anxiety of selling in volatile markets.

Our workshops are led by experienced cash grain marketers and licensed commodity brokers. Each has worked for many years in various areas of farming, elevators, manufacturing and finance. Presentations may be customized to meet the specific needs of the sponsor or producers involved.


  • Two to four hour courses with basic sales information.
  • Each participant leaves with a marketing plan outline.
  • A free 30 day subscription to John Roach’s Grain Market Commentary.
