“Price Risk Management through Ceres has helped our operation budget and plan for current and future expenses on our fuel needs. Now we know that we have a consistent supply of quality fuel at a set price for the time period that we lock in,” says Wayne McCutchan, who farms with his son Jason near Ladoga, Indiana in Montgomery County.
