Brexit uncertainty is making feel drawn towards insuring via Stable

Good idea ?
im thinking sell some for october to empty a shed , its a £1 less than nov and same time buy a may option a bit above so as not to cost too much then rent shed out over winter for storage or some other earning stream,should more than pay for the option and if grain collapses position sorted if it takes off still got the option to sell and if it stays the same other use will pay for the option

Any tariffs are on the seller’s account i.e. us farmers. It’s in the standard AIC contract. In reality, the merchants know we won’t be doing any more business with them if they sting us for the tariffs of up to €93/t. Expect a lot of export trade August - October before the Brexit deadline.

Thanks for clarifying, that's where I read it. I can't see what option the merchants will have other than to sting us for any tariffs arising. I thought they traded on margins of a few quid per tonne so couldn't afford to make good any net price reduction due to tariff imposition. Tariffs only apply to exports of course. Imports will be free from tariffs. The home market could become flooded with grain that's no longer economic to export so we end up with our own internal market with lower prices than world markets????

Sold half mine forward for September to try to add a bit of stability. The rest will be sold at harvest immediate movement ...... Unless Rory Stewart gets in.

We ain't seen nothing yet.

Must be why some of the merchants were offering me 4-5 quid more for dec movement over nov when I asked 10 days ago

There are quite a few going up in this part of the world, though not enough to really boost demand for wheat.

I thought Wales was mostly grass fed sheep. A neighbour hauls sheep up from Wales to an abbatoir in E Yorks, then the carcasses go back down to Wales to be cut up about 5 miles from the farm they came from. All seems a bit bonkers to me.

Half my wheat is sold for 148 for September. (Feed). Not the highest price no doubt, but I'm happy with it.
A bit worried about what happens after Brexit. I thought I read some small print somewhere that we as farmers will shoulder any reductions due to tariffs in the event of no deal. This must make selling forward beyond 31/10/19 a bit of a gamble? Or have I got that wrong.
Wrexham isn’t really what you’d think of as Wales . It’s only 20 mins from me, and is one of a number of big feed mills and chicken farms locally. We have Wynnstay, Oakland eggs, Lloyds etc, so usually get at least £5 premium on feed wheat, compared to you chaps. That’s why I only grow feed wheat.
 
Anyway, where is the best place to get live grain prices? By the time I have seen whats going on its usually too late. The price I am actually offered always seems considerably lower than the market reports but these are usually well out of date so more or less useless. I need real time info. A graph really.
