Go With The Grain At River Valley

If you’re going to take full advantage of high grain prices, it helps to have a partner who can help you navigate today’s volatile grain markets.

Count on River Valley Cooperative for basis contracts, minimum price contracts, hedge-to-arrive contracts, price-later contracts, priced-forward contracts, deferred payment contracts, direct deposit of grain checks, grain hauling services, and grain market insights.

River Valley provides two grain delivery options for marketing your grain, including:

  • More than 27 million bushels of licensed storage space at our 14 elevator locations. Our facilities at Olin, Dewitt, Ryan, and Martelle are equipped with 15,000 to 30,000 bushels per hour of receiving capacity. Two locations (Galva and Sunbury) are connected with feed mills that utilize 25,000 bushels of corn per day. 
  • A direct-ship program that allows you to ship grain to local terminals. Bushels can be delivered to a number of delivery points through different freight options. The same marketing options that are available for grain hauled into our elevators are also available on direct-ship bushels. We offer multiple delivery points and can price the grain either delivered or as farm pick-up.
