Hedge Line for producers

Do you have funds ready to seize the next market opportunity?

Adequate margin call funds can mean the difference between capitalizing on a market opportunity and missing out. We know that having ready cash for margin calls can be a major barrier at certain times of the year, so we offer Hedge Line, which seamlessly transfers funds between the lender (CHS Capital) and CHS Hedging without affecting your operating lines of credit. The convenience of funding a CHS Hedging account means increased opportunities to use risk management tools, including futures and options, to market your commodities.

CHS Pro Advantage

Professional pricing that simplifies and diversifies grain marketing for growers.

A CHS Pro Advantage contract provides a simple way to diversify your crop marketing while benefiting from professional pricing. It’s especially important to allow trading experts to price for you during times of volatile or low-priced commodity markets. Growers pledge a specific quantity of bushels for a grower-defined delivery destination, and CHS Hedging commodity professionals will price those bushels over a specific time period.
