Before you sell your corn or soybeans, consider all of your options.

Marketing strategies for every grower

United Cooperative has gone to great lengths to make sure our grain receiving facilities are in the right locations for the majority of our member-owners. We keep our handling and storage equipment clean and in good working order to minimize hiccups during the critical fall harvest season, and offer extended grain delivery hours and extra help to keep our local harvest rolling. 

For grain customers who use forward-pricing strategies, we can help you with your marketing plans and order placement, or execute orders and deliveries from your outside marketing firm. Our goal is to work with you in any capacity that makes the most sense for your operation. Click below for contracting options or to find a location near you.

Grain Update

Dec 13, 2022

United Cooperative has already handled a record amount of corn and soybeans this harvest, and there is a small amount yet to be harvested. We currently have several million bushels of corn on the ground, and with the bean harvest coming in so fast, we also put soybeans outside for the first time as we waited for freight. Wisconsin has been fortunate to produce excellent yields and quality in the past

2022: A Year in Review

Dec 12, 2022

As we close out 2022, I want to reflect on the tremendous momentum we have experienced this year. Our employees and facilities functioned at a very high level, creating growth, timely service, and demand creation. I want to thank the employees for their commitment and dedication and our member/owners for your loyalty and trust.
