Grain facilities

We have 8 grain facilities with more than 11 million bushels of storage. We continue to expand and upgrade our grain facilities, adding bin space and improving dumping speeds at all our locations. 

With our set up of large pits, you simply pull in, dump and leave to get back to the field for the next load. 

We also offer storage at competitive rates.

Our grain facilities are located in Addieville, Mascoutah (wheat only), Okawville, Pierron, St. Libory, Trenton, Highland and New Douglas.

Competitive bids, multiple contracting options

You’ll find our grain bids are extremely competitive, which is thanks in part to our access to markets. This includes rail options out of Addieville and Okawville locations to Southeast U.S. processors, end users, feed areas and poultry areas. We can co-load up to a 90-car unit train. 

Our merchandisers will work with you on the pricing strategy you want to employ. In addition to flat price sales, a few options include: 

Forward contract  A straightforward way to market grain. There is no minimum bushel amount and no service fee. Unlike options and Minimum Price Contracts, there is no premium to pay. However, with a forward contract, farmers cannot benefit if prices rise. 

Basis contract – When basis levels are strong, this contract allows you to lock in that strength and set your futures price later. 

Hedge-to-Arrive – This contract allows you to lock in the futures price, while allowing the basis to be set at a later date. 

We do have other specialty contracts available as well!

Daily Grain History

Flex your fleet size when you need it

When you have a need for extra hauling capacity, look to Top Ag. We will pick up grain at your farm bin or field; we will spot (drop) trailers in your field at harvest time; and you have the option of sending the grain to the elevator for open storage or warehouse receipt storage.

Our trucks are for hire, and we will quote you a rate on anything you may have to haul. Our drivers know farming and most area farms, and they live and work in the counties where you farm.

Keep us in mind when you market your farm-stored grain and plan your agronomy inputs. 

Top Ag Trucking Details

  • Top Ag owns 11 semi-tractors, 6 tri-axle dump trailers, 13 hopper bottom grain trailers and 2 van trailers. 
  • We have operating authority for Illinois, Missouri, Iowa, Indiana, Kentucky, and Kansas.
  • We haul grain, specialty grain, dry fertilizer, limestone, rock, cow sand, soybean meal and many other feed products. We also deliver fill products to stabilize Ag Bags.
  •  
Please contact Mallory Buescher at (618)-267-7313 for any of your transportation needs.
