Who on the list is in the Farming or Futures Business?

I come from a long line of Farmers and am considering growing a number of crops including corn.

I would be using the Futures Market to Hedge the Corn.

There is no one living in the family who's brain I can pick about Hedging via the Futures Market as my grandpa did his whole life.

Looking to lean what ever I can before next spring.

Thanks,

Tom

No clue on the answer to your question but I would like to know about corn growing. Ive always been interested in learning some self sufficiency farming. Nothing to make money off of but just enough to have some for a small number of people.
