SELECTIVE RESPONSES TO RISK IN PURCHASING GRAIN: DO PATRON AND INVESTOR OWNED FIRMS DIFFER?

The broad purpose of this study is to compare patron owned with investor owned firms in terms of the arrangements they make to cope with the risk inherent in the exchange of grain between Michigan farmers and the first-handler grain firms that serve them. Focus will be upon possible distinctions between cooperative and proprietary firms within three specific areas of concern. These areas are: (1) the pricing of grain; (2) the methods of exchange firms offer to their farm customers; and (3) the terms and conditions of grain purchase contracts.
