Grain Marketing goes a long way to justifying our slogan, ‘Partner with Planfarm’.

For many farmers grain marketing is one of the most difficult parts of the business. Volatile markets combined with variable seasons can create a lot of stress, risk and work. It can a be a huge distraction from what farmers would rather being focussing on like growing crops and enjoying some downtime. 

By ‘partnering with Planfarm’ we aim to eliminate all of these negative factors, take advantage of opportunities and provide our proven expertise to ensure that we get the very best results for your business, irrespective of market and seasonal forces. We maximise returns from grain sales while keeping production risk, price risk and financial stress within pre-determined thresholds, which provides you with an unparalleled degree of peace-of-mind. You retain complete control and visibility throughout the marketing process but without having to do all the leg work.

Whilst no company can guarantee the top of the market, by using the proven Planfarm processes and elite strategies and products, what we can guarantee is consistently good results.

We will provide significant financial benefit to you via:

  • Market analysis and price discovery
  • Parcelling and brokerage of grain
  • Swaps management and execution
  • Grain optimisation and contract nominations

There are also many non-monetary benefits that Planfarm extends to clients, such as creating and implementing a tailored marketing strategy, real-time monitoring of sales and production levels, administration and benchmarking results against industry standards as well as providing a critical second opinion to help take the emotion out of what is often an emotionally charged business decision.

THE SMITH FAMILY

We partnered with Planfarm in 2007 and introduced on-farm business planning processes that have resulted in continual growth in profitability and equity, allowing us to participate on off-farm investments that provide income without effort. Planfarm’s guidance is ongoing and our current focus is succession planning for the farm and family’s long term benefit.

Client Testimonials

We’ve had the principal farm for 80 years and, like any business, you can get a little comfortable. Partnering with Planfarm gives us another perspective and allows smarter, independent decision making and analysis. We better understand the profit drivers in our business which has led to the opportunity to expand our operation via acquisition and lease.

– James and Margaret Couper

We moved from South Africa two years ago, as potato and summer crop farmers, broadacre grain and sheep was a whole new experience. My son JP has taken on the full responsibility of farming our farm after the loss of my husband in South Africa only weeks before we moved. Planfarm have been critical in strategic planning and educating us on Australian farming conditions and accessing and building historical production records. Planfarm is an important factor in our succession planning as our situation is not a simple, standard plan, their role is vital for our future as a young family.

– Samantha Van De Velde

We’ve partnered with Planfarm for three generations. They help to keep us level headed and to approach farm operations, succession planning and general business with a balanced view. They are a great sounding board for our ideas and bring many of their own to the table. Importantly, Planfarm’s historical records of the business allow us to review data and make informed decisions. I’ve also participated in Planfarm Academy which has been very beneficial.
