CBH Grain has developed a pool calculator to make accessing its grain pool payment information simple and easy.

Based on the Quality Optimisation model, the pool calculator enables different scenarios to be built based on the pool growers have or are intending to deliver into and produce a payment schedule for the coming year.

The scenarios can be printed out to use in an annual budget planning process.

CBH's pool calculator will work the estimated pool return back to a net silo return, deducting storage and handling, finance charges, levies, freight and receival costs.

As end point royalties can vary greatly between commodity and variety, they have not been factored into the calculation.

The pool calculator formulates chosen parameters into a payment schedule over the life of the pool, based on the payment type selected, allowing growers to budget for when payments will be received and how much you can expect.

You can use the pool calculator throughout the year to get the most up-to-date pool payment estimates at any time for budgeting purposes.

CBH Grain is continually working to make doing business with it as simple as possible, and provide you with consistent and transparent information so you can make informed decisions.

The pool calculator will complement its Pool Talk publication that is emailed to all pool participants throughout the life of the pool to keep them updated on the performance of their pool investment.

To access the pool calculator go to the CBH website home page and click on the pool calculator banner.
