Grain marketing is one of the biggest challenges any farmer faces.

Our grain team can help you devise a marketing plan that helps place a floor under your income while allowing you to take advantage of short-term price moves.

Grain Overview

Are you getting the best possible price for your grain?

It often comes down to who you are selling it to

At Key, we have one over-riding objective among our grain team members: to help you make more money on every bushel you sell. No corporate grain buyer is interested in paying you a single penny more for your corn and soybeans than they absolutely have to. Doesn’t matter if it’s a giant grain company, or the local ethanol plant. They make more when you make less.

As a cooperative owned by farmers, on the other hand, our interests are closely aligned with yours. We work for you, and want you to succeed by marketing your crops at the best possible prices. The Key team is in the grain market every single day, and can help you match the bushels you have to sell with buyers who are offering the highest bids at any given time. We can also show you strategies to capture short-term price moves over the course of the growing season, whether you have any actual grain in the bin, or not.

Discount Schedule & Policies

Disposition of Grain


The driver will provide the scale operator with the grain owner’s name, division of the grain, notify the scale operator on the last load and disposition of the grain (store, sell, condo storage, etc). If no instructions are given, the grain will be first applied to all open contracts by location on the 20th day from the date of first delivery. Unpriced grain, which has been held beyond the 20 day limit, will be considered stored with the Average Delivery Date to be considered the deposit date (with appropriate storage-drying shrink rates assessed). A new delivery period will then be started.

Crop Insurance

How much is enough?

 

Our risk managers are here to help

 

Crop insurance is an important risk management tool every farmer should consider. Purchasing too much insurance is an unnecessary expense, and too little can leave in a bind should planting conditions or weather events during the growing season leave you short a crop. Our crop insurance partners at Mason City All Risk Insurance, Inc. can help you build a level of insurance protection that is right for your farm.
