The Georgia Farm Bureau Marketing Department is the marketing agency for our farmer members, and its staff assists producers with marketing their grain and feed ingredient procurement.
The Marketing Department was formed to give producers an alternative market for their commodities and maintain competition in the marketplace. When Georgia Farm Bureau established the Marketing Association in 1964, our goal was to help producers receive the best possible price for their commodities. Today, our goal has not changed. Simply put, our effort is to benefit our producer member and improve their net farm income while easing their marketing burden.
The Marketing Department offers marketing programs for grain and feed ingredients. We provide daily market information through our GFB Commodity Farmline Report. The Commodity Farm Line Report offers closing futures quotes on grains, cotton, livestock, and commodity news & information. You can access this service by calling toll free at (866) GFB-FARM or (866) 432-3276.
Through our Futures At A Glance messaging program, you can have daily futures information sent directly to your cell phone. No matter where you go, you'll have access to the information you need.
All of the GFB marketing programs were designed with you, the producer, in mind. Producers have access to an experienced staff to help with each transaction. The GFB Marketing Department guarantees payment, is fully bonded, and provides timely service on all transactions.

During September, a Futures Marketing Seminar was presented by Georgia Farm Bureau. The goal was to share the information farmers need to make the markets work in their favor during these tough economic times. Here is a story about the workshop from the Georgia Farm Monitor.
