Grain

Flexibility, access and speed are key features of working with Top Ag when you look to sell your grain. 
 

Grain facilities

We have six facilities with more than 7.2 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 and Trenton.

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!

   Grains Higher as Demand Supports

   December corn is up 1 3/4 cents per bushel, November soybeans are up 9
cents, and December KC wheat is up 5 cents.

   Pre-6 a.m. Globex Prices:  December corn is up 1 3/4 cents per bushel,
November soybeans are up 9 cents, and December KC wheat is up 5 cents.

   CME Globex Recap:  Global equity trade has been mixed overnight while U.S.
futures are suggesting a strong open Tuesday morning. There seems to be only
two narratives in the marketplace at the moment with one being expanding
coronavirus cases across Europe and the U.S. while the other is whether another
stimulus package will be passed before the November election. Energy markets
are mostly higher overnight with natural gas rallying over 3.5%. The U.S.
Dollar Index is softer overnight, refusing to move very far from its 50-day
moving average at 93.3174. Grain futures are higher across the board overnight,
led by gains in the soy complex. So far, sessions featuring weaker trade have
been buying opportunities with bulls quick to defend current uptrends. The next
major USDA reports won't come until January, leaving the markets to focus on
South American weather and demand.

   OUTSIDE MARKETS:  Previous closes on Monday showed the Dow Jones Industrial
Average down 410.89 at 28,195.42 and the S&P 500 down 56.89 at 3,483.81 while
the 10-Year Treasury yield ended at 0.761%. Early Tuesday, the December DJIA
futures are up 190 points. Asian markets are mixed with Japan's Nikkei 225 down
104.09 (-0.44%) and China's Shanghai Composite up 15.44 points (0.47%).
European markets are mixed with London's FTSE 100 up 3.43 points (0.06%),
Germany's DAX down 75.39 points (-0.59%) and France's CAC 40 up 8.01 points
(0.16%). The December Euro is up 0.005 at 1.180 and the December U.S. dollar
index is down 0.274 at 93.155. The December 30-Year T-Bond is down 19/32nds,
while December gold is down $1.50 at $1,910.20 and December crude oil is up
$0.13 at $41.19. Soybeans on China's Dalian Exchange were up 1.83% while
soybean meal was up 0.59%.

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 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.
