Farmer Finds Peace of Mind with Water Street Solutions

by Heather Lauf October 11, 2012

Travis Michl 3Travis Michl from Newton, Illinois works with Water Street Solutions. He talked about how working with a market advisor lets him focus his attention on other areas of his farm business:

"I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of me. I have somebody watching my back, all day. That's what Water Street does on the marketing. On our farm, we have a team around us - and our market advisor is a very integral part of that because he watches the markets for us. There's too much involved in farming right now for us to manage everything by ourselves and do an optimal job. Our market advisor leads our marketing so I don't have to worry about that side of things. I know he's got it covered."
