Strategic thinking is at the core of what we do. With solid and diverse backgrounds heavily influenced by their agricultural roots, the Centrec organization has not only the talent and experience, but also the innate ability to translate strategic thinking into tangible results.
Centrec guides clients through making confident decisions based on sound research – research originating from analysis of public and private data, surveys, focus groups, and
Centrec connects with the entire value chains of food and fiber. We have worked extensively with large commercial ag production enterprises, acting in various roles – from strategists and long-term planners, to hands-on managers and decision makers to providing financial analysis and accounting support.
Modeling is one of the core competencies of Centrec. Our clients benefit from our knowledge and experience which, when combined with our technical talent, takes complex data to visual and comprehensive models that serve as decision-making tools.
Economics is woven throughout the backgrounds of our consultants. This includes both microeconomic drivers of a firm's performance to macroeconomic impacts of technological or societal trends. We approach our projects with a higher focus – such as with our work with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) when we analyzed the cost-benefits of satellites for the next generation.
Centrec works along the entire value chains of food and fiber – from seed to production to marketing to processing to final product. Our client list has included seed technology companies, large farmers and ranchers, grain and food processors, commodity groups, and research institutions.
With more than 20 years of experience working with grain quality and value, Centrec was chosen to coordinate national quality assessments for soybeans and corn. Through primary data acquisition and analysis, we provide clarity of what drives the values of these crops and more.
Whether it's through educational seminars, workshops or facilitation, the people of Centrec are often called upon to share their knowledge with farmers, ranchers, ag credit and other audiences. As an example, Steve Hofing and Mike Boehlje are regular presenters at Texas A&M's Association of Agricultural Production Executives (AAPEX). MORE
Even outside the world of agriculture, the people of Centrec are called upon to help boards of directors and their organizations meet their goals and structure their visions. Our consultants intuitively know how to facilitate meetings and bring together individual thoughts and ideas into one or more strategic plans. MORE
The people of Centrec understand accounting. Clients have engaged us to work closely with their operations to design and establish meaningful and fully-integrated accounting systems. Farmers and ranchers particularly benefit from customized systems that help articulate profit and cost centers.
