Up, Down, & Unchanged Podcast

The Up, Down & Unchanged podcast covers market outlooks from a cash grain marketing perspective. In this podcast, Karl & Angie give producers ideas for cash grain marketing opportunities and future market scenarios to consider.

Angie brings a light-hearted, Eastern Corn Belt perspective to her outlook, while Karl has a more reserved, Western Corn Belt perspective. Both preach that nobody knows what the grain markets will do and producers should be prepared for they MIGHT do. Karl and Angie both heavily promote using risk management tools in producer gain marketing.
