We are a locally owned members cooperative in north west Iowa, south west Minnesota, and south east South Dakota. Our main office is located in Sioux Center, IA. We strive to live by our company’s motto: “Partnering with Producers for Mutual Success”. Our company is comprised of different areas: Agronomy, Feed, Grain, and a How to Building Store. We provide producers with a place to buy and sell grain, feed that grain with livestock, manage their waste from the livestock, and use that to help them grow a better crop.
We help farmers achieve their goals and increase profitability because, to us, every individual operation and every acre presents a unique situation. To reach our customers’ expectations, we continually raise the bar.
