That is a good question. Since I am not a farmer, and have to rely on second hand information from sources like documentaries and such. How does farmer Joe do it in the real world. You have peaked my curiousity. Are there regional brokers for CME that deal with co-ops and the like? Is it the contract beween Farmer Joe and Martha White that is being bounced around the floor between now and delivery? Your first hand knowledge and insight would be greatly appreciated.
