2013 Wheat Harvest Price Tracking has begun. The Wheat BASE price is $8.78/bu and HARVEST Price tracking right now at $7.46/bu so keep a watch on the home page of the web site for updates each day and the final HARVEST to be set after June 30th!! 

Also, we have mailed or contacted you about your 2013 SPRING Acreage Reports, so when you are finished planting your Spring crops just get them filled out and sent back to the office for processing!! If you have filed claims already on your Spring crops and have not reported your acres to us, please do so as soon as possible as this will aid in the processing of your claims!!!  

If you are planting ZERO acres, we still need you to sign and return your acreage report!! Verify your SHARES, LAND LEGALS, PRACTICES, etc. before sending in your reports and once you receive your SCHEDULE OF INSURANCE, review it for accuracy because we  only have 10 DAYS from the date you receive it to make any corrections now. 

Crop Hail rates are set for this hail season and July Cotton Rates should be out around June 17th!!

As always, if you have questions about your coverage, please give us a call!!

Wheat Estimates & Applications

Wheat estimates and applications will be ready and mailed out on Friday, September 14th. We will use the current daily average price which is hovering around $8.74 per bushel, but the final BASE price will NOT be set until we receive confirmation from RMA on our around the September 17th.  We will be ready to discuss your coverages with you once you receive the estimates and help you make a decision about your coverage for the coming crop year.

Cut Off Date for Changes to Level of Coverage

REMEMBER!! You MUST make any changes to your levels of coverage, changes in entity’s, etc. by NO LATER THAN SEPTEMBER 30th!! So please review the information we are sending you for accuracy and even if there are NO CHANGES we must have the applications signed and returned to our office indicating you’ve reviewed the documents and your intentions for the 2013 crop year.  Our ability to make changes after sales closing has been greatly reduced, so please don’t wait until the last day to review your applications and coverages!!

Production Loss Notification on Spring Planted Crops

Also, as we move forward into Fall harvest season please be sure to notify our office if you think you will have a production loss on your Spring planted crops as soon as possible, so that we can get your losses turned in and assigned to adjusters timely.  The HARVEST prices are tracking and available for viewing on our website daily at www.MyFarmAgent.com.  The FINAL price will be announced after September 30th so having your harvested production IN OUR OFFICE will help us also determine if you have a REVENUE loss, if that is applicable to the coverage you have!! So PLEASE start getting us your production records.

Sales Closing Date for PRF has Changed

PRF (Pasture, Rainfall & Forage) Plan sales closing date has changed to November 15th for the 2013 policy term.  If you are a current policy holder you will receive a note card from us when we have your renewal ready to discuss and if you are a NEW insured to PRF please call our office and make an appointment, as these policies take at least an hour to discuss in detail with you and set up.  You can also look at PRF pricing on the RMA website by using the Decision Support Tool.  There have been some changes in how you can insure your acres in the intervals, so in some cases, it might be more appealing to you than in years past.

Save the Date

This year we’ve decided against having our booth at the Amarillo Farm & Ranch Show, which will be held November 27-29 at the Amarillo Civic Center.  In lieu of the week long event, we will be having a producer meeting Wednesday, November 28th at 4:00pm at the Ambassador Hotel.  We intend to have representatives from the companies present to give us an update on operations, speakers from the local grain boards and from new weather products coming onto the marketplace.  We will conclude the meeting with our annual Hospitality event commencing at 5:00pm.  We hope you will make plans to attend this informative session as we continue forward with the uncertainty of Crop Insurance, the Farm Bill and the affects of governmental decisions on how we continue together in this industry.

Critical Time for Paperwork

IMPORTANT: Please provide us with your wheat production as you harvest or receive your settlement sheets so that we can check for losses and will have the data necessary to review Revenue Plan losses in a timely manner. 

Reminder that SPRING Acreage Reports are due NO LATER than July 15th!!!

Please report your acreage to us as soon as possible even if you have zero planted acreage. We must be in receipt of the signed acreage report indicating your intentions.  Verify your acreage when reporting to avoid misreported or missed acres!! We only have a small window to correct acreage so the accuracy of your reporting is very important!!

Billing for Spring Crops is August 15th this year so the sooner we can key your acreages, the more accurate your billing statements will be for this change in the billing cycle.  If you need help with your acreage report or have questions on how to complete the form, please just call us or come by the office and we will be glad to assist you!! 

Crop Hail season is upon us!! If you would like to add this coverage to your planted crops or wheat that has not yet been harvested, just give us a call!! REMEMBER THAT LEAVING A MESSAGE ON OUR VOICE MAIL IS NOT A BINDER!!! WE MUST SPEAK TO YOU TO OBTAIN THIS COVERAGE FOR YOU!!! 

We try to be available to you, but purchasing this coverage during business hours is strongly encouraged!!!

Daily Emails Discontinued/Trending Now Emails Mean Reduced Carbon Footprint!

Trending Now

Your acreage reports and maps have been mailed to you. We appreciate your cooperation in getting those completed and returned to us as soon as possible. Due date is 12/30/11. Contact us if you need help.

In other news, we are going to discontinue the daily ag news email effective immediately BUT it will be available to you daily on the Web site. This will allow us the opportunity to send you important emails that we feel will be more relevant to your operations and decision making. Price tracking emails will also change to a bi weekly format rather than daily but again the prices will be posted daily on the site. We believe this change will be more beneficial to you than a daily email.

OUR HOLIDAY HOURS
Early close on 12/23 at 3pm and closed ALL day on the 26th so please make a note of these dates. Merry Christmas and thank you all for your feedback regarding the Web site and for your business!! 2011 will go down on record as a challenging crop year!!
