Over-the-Counter (OTC) Livestock Hedging Contracts
To protect producers from unfavorable changes in the cattle market, we offer Over-the-Counter (OTC) Livestock Hedging Contracts. Unlike exchange-traded futures contracts, Equity's OTC contracts are flexibly sized to meet an individual producer's needs with available contract size as small as 5,000 pounds. They also have no money down, no margin calls, and have reduced fees with a commitment to market through Equity. Want to know more? Click here to review the informational brochure or call James Schroeder at 1-800-362-3989, ext. 132.
