comment Futures Contracts, Rollover, Offsets
Form what I understand so far, producers go to futures market for price protection, but this protection must be in proportion to what they produce otherwise it's not protection. With my question I was interested in understanding the production / contract size relationship; The delivery need not necessarily be through the futures contracts, but it happens elsewhere.

I see; I understand the motivation for the buyer now (the airline example, cast settlement was informative). The producer can also cash settle, and sell the corn to someone else. Is that why only 1% of contracts result in actual delivery? This also suggests producers would never create contracts they would not / could not fullfil, right?

Okay - so let's say I am producing corn, I want to "lock" a price at $6 per bushel, for 5,000 bushels it is worth 30,000. Well, if this corn will never delivered, why would I want to create this contract, and lock a price?
