Sample Advice Alert:  
WHEAT PRODUCERS: MAKE 2013-CROP WHEAT SALES... 
Wheat futures violated support at the spring lows last week and have been unable to recover back above that old support despite Chinese demand. As a result, we are removing some downside risk by making new-crop cash sales. 
Wheat hedgers are advised to sell 50% of 2013-crop production in the cash market. 
Cash-only marketers are advised to make a 25% new-crop sale. 
We are being more aggressive with sales for hedgers as they can re-own a portion of sales in long futures or call options if wheat futures post a seasonal low and show signs of an extended price recovery.
