Why Sciota Trading?

Marketing your crops and livestock is difficult.  You do your best to raise your crops and livestock efficiently.  You have the competing needs of trying to get the best price, while managing the risks you take to get that price. In a world market, events half-way around the world can change your local prices overnight.  Combine this with pressing cash flow needs and all the other work you need to get done. Now focusing on marketing your grain and livestock becomes difficult.

That’s where the advisors from Sciota Trading can help.  We are experts in marketing because we focus on the markets all day, every day. We filter and refine information to help you implement a plan to manage your risk and your commodities. Additionally, we get to know you, so we can tailor our advice to your specific needs and circumstances.

We work one-on-one with farmers, so we develop agricultural marketing plans that are personal to you.
