Our Mission: To improve the profitability, sustainability and quality of life for progressive, family‐oriented cattle feeding operations by providing comprehensive financial and market risk management services in a way that honors God.



Compass Ag Solutions was created with one goal in mind - to improve the quality of life for people in agriculture by helping them build and implement business and risk management strategies that are consistent with their core values and risk tolerances. We have never strayed from that goal and as Compass Ag Solutions was born, took shape and then launched, all the pieces that were needed to reach that goal came to fulfillment.

Compass owner and principal Jason Kraft had a vision to combine traditional ag risk strategies (futures hedging), unwavering personal and professional core values and state‐of‐the‐art technical tools and resources into a company that would offer the very best in business and risk management strategies for today's agribusinesses.

Volatility is nothing new in agriculture, but the range and scope of that volatility has increased exponentially over the past few years. Without reliable and thoughtful strategies to manage risk and change, it's hard for agribusinesses to stay afloat at times. Compass Ag Solutions is a trusted industry partner to help you navigate the roads and days ahead and arrive safely.

Our staff has a vested interest in the cattle industry, and a unique perspective to managing risk. At Compass Ag Solutions, we believe that:

  • You cannot manage what you cannot measure.
  • Knowing one's position is primary to any risk management plan.
  • A successful risk management strategy must align with the overall goals of each individual company.
  • "Risk management" refers to the actual process of identifying the right amount of risk for each firm in relation to their goals and restraints and is not simply a justification to trade.
  • Our goal is to get the right information to the right people at the right time to make the right decision.
  • A "one size fits all" approach to risk management is not valid.
  • We are passionate about the cattle feeding industry but dispassionate about the risk management decision making process.
  • Simplicity on the front of complexity is disastrous; but simplicity on the back side of complexity is priceless.
  • There is a difference in doing business with ethical experts in the cattle industry.
RISK DISCLAIMER: The risk of loss in trading commodity futures and options is substantial. Before trading, you should carefully consider your financial position to determine if futures trading is appropriate. When trading futures and/or options, it is possible to lose more than the full value of your account. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
