About Us


Choice Cotton was organized in 2012 to assist cotton producers in marketing their crop. We provide market access and personal consultation to guide pricing decisions. We are unique in that we are producer-owned but led by a staff with over 60 years combined experience in the cotton trade. We act as a producer’s marketing agent, not a buyer of your cotton. This allows us to focus on your best interest and deliver unbiased recommendations and assistance. Our access to a host of both domestic and foreign buyers permits us to develop best possible marketing strategy for the producer.

Services We Have To Offer

Forward Contracts – We are currently offering forward contracts with a very competitive basis and qualify premiums included. Please call our office for specific terms.

Recap Sales – We will solicit bids on recaps from various merchants and foreign buyers. We will then compare bids to spot quotations and bids from other areas to advise you on the best attainable price. Ask your gin to send your recaps to recaps@choicecotton.com if possible. Otherwise, have them sent by fax to 334-365-9261.

Loan Service – Through USA-LSA, a Cotton Loan Servicing Agent, Choice Cotton can facilitate cotton loans and Loan Deficiency Payments (LDP’s). In the 2015 market environment, we advise producers who have not priced all of their cotton to utilize the cotton loan program. The marketing loan program absorbs warehouse charges until the cotton is redeemed. This can save the producer one to three cents. We can provide the same Marketing Loan services as the county FSA offices at the same cost but in an expedited manner. Loan advances or LDP proceeds will be paid within 24-48 hours of processing. Forms and other information for this service will be online at www.usa-lsa.com.

Marketing Assistance – Throughout the year, we will consult with you providing market information and share unbiased interpretation and recommendations. Choice Cotton can provide daily projections of LDP rate to help producers better time sales and LDP payments. At the time of sale, Choice Cotton can handle EWR transfers to eliminate the need for the producer to come up with the cash to redeem from the loan. Choice Cotton protects the producer by insuring money is received before buyer receives collateral.

Our objective is to build good sound relationships based on trust, a long term focus and careful consideration of all marketing tools. It is our hope we can work together toward this aim. We would welcome the opportunity to visit with you and further discuss the services we can provide. Please call to arrange a visit.
