New video series gives insight on grain reports

Ardent Mills has launched “The Inside Scoop,” a YouTube video series designed to provide customers with reviews of the latest U.S. Department of Agriculture grain reports. From all wheat classes to corn and soybeans, “The Inside Scoop” will review production, stocks and consumption as well as developments affecting world trade in grains.

Upcoming episodes may be found by visiting the risk management page on the www.ardentmills.com web site or by visiting youtube.com/ardent mills. Each episode will be about 5 to 10 minutes in length and will be posted on-line within one business day following the release of scheduled U.S.D.A. reports.

“At Ardent Mills, our goal is to help our customers understand, measure and mitigate their price risk exposure, reducing ‘unknowns’ to protect their business from price volatility,” said Dan Dye, chief executive officer of Denver-based Ardent Mills. “Ultimately, we want to help our customers achieve their financial goals.”

Mike Miller, vice-president of risk management at Ardent Mills, added, “We saw a need to develop a timely resource to help our customers quickly understand the U.S.D.A. reports and provide meaningful insights for their business. The grain markets are ever-changing, and it can be challenging to build strategies for a moving target. It’s our goal to provide guidance on what is happening in the market and what is waiting on the horizon.”
