A better grain marketing method can help to unlock farm profitability.

A Cargill MarketGuide advisor will direct you toward success.

Marketing your grain well is one of the keys to unlocking farm profitability. But marketing grain begins with a goal – what do you want to accomplish on the farm this year? In five years? In ten? Cargill MarketGuide advisors start at the beginning, knowing that your goals will set the tone for your grain marketing plan. Not only will these advisors help you create your goals, but a plan to help reach and even exceed them. More importantly, a Cargill MarketGuide advisor will help you revisit and work your plan throughout the year, particularly when the market signals opportunity.

We’ve built our reputation on the foundation of expertise. We help our clients become better grain marketers because we spend time with each farmer, one on one, to help them understand what their goals mean, how they can best reach their goals, and how they can build on their goals year after year.
