Agricultural Market Expert Cy Monley of Silveus Financial to Discuss Global Commodity Markets, Strategies to Optimize Grain Marketing

ATLANTA, Ind. (Aug. 8, 2018) – Reynolds Farm Equipment, a leading regional John Deere retailer, announced today that agriculture market expert Cy Monley will keynote its 2018 Harvest Clinic Aug. 22, giving farmers new insights on commodity marketing strategies heading into Harvest.

Monley, the co-founder of Chicago-based Silveus Financial, has served more than 20 years in agricultural markets developing and executing grain marketing strategies through futures, options and over-the-counter products at leading firms, including MF Global, AFI Commodities and LaSalle Group.

“With today’s commodity prices and global grain market uncertainty, Hoosier farmers are faced with tough grain marketing decisions heading into Harvest,” said Mitch Frazier, chief executive officer of Reynolds Farm Equipment. “With the addition of Cy to our annual Harvest Clinic, we will provide Central Indiana farmers new views into the global market from one of the industry’s top experts alongside the practical machine insights farmers need to make the most of Harvest 2018.”

Monley is expected to speak at 11:35 a.m. and will serve as the closing keynote at the annual event, which is expected to welcome nearly 500 farmers.

“Tariffs are making the global market bearish on corn and beans, but if they go away, all bets are off,”said Monley. “I’ll show strategies we are using to help farmers first protect their return and then prepare for a variety of scenarios.”

Reynolds Harvest Clinic will begin at 9 a.m. and will include:

  • Hands-on classes offering actionable advice from John Deere-certified technicians and product experts on how to optimize machine settings and technology for peak in-field performance;
  • Harvest innovation expo featuring the latest in harvest products from manufacturers; and
  • Complimentary lunch featuring agriculture market expert Cy Monley.
