Cattle can be kept natural or be commercial for this program.
There will be risk management available.
Financing is available at 1% over prime and 25% the delivered cost of the cattle is required up front. Example: (If cattle cost $800.00/head, you would receive $600.00/head back and the $200.00 would be equity in the animal.) The balance of the cattle, feed and hedging can also be financed.
If you want to retain ownership on your cattle, risk management will be available.
We can manage market fluctuations by using different hedging and option strategies.
We have over 20 years of experience in risk management.
