So a grain company wants all my farm data in season.
A grain company that will remain nameless is coming out with a “program” to collect all cropping information as it pertains to the crop being purchased in season to boot. Right down to fertility program you name it.
Haven’t meet up with them yet on it but understand it’s a voluntary pilot.
Now imagine how handy it would be for the grain company to have all our yield data in hand when it comes to bidding for said crop.
So now I’m working on a politically correct way to say blow me to a bunch of big wig’s from the grain company....
Probably other’s have the same “invite”. Interested on how they are going to deal with it.
I always tell them they can pay me $X.XX per acre depending on how much info they are going to take. If they are going to extract data from my farm they can pay me their going charge rate. Or they can take a hike! They usually don’t take that too kindly but whatever. If we were smart we’d keep all our data and make THEM sign a farmer data agreement/contract. Pretty sure a few would dry up in a hurry. Just my .02
