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

  • More than 40 million bushels of licensed storage space between our 11 facilities in Iowa and 9 in Illinois. These include our feed milling facilities at Galva and Sunbury utilize 40,000 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.
