Grain Cooperative, Inc. is a farmer-owned grain cooperative in
the heartland of the USA in the middle of Illinois grain belt. The rich
soils and modern farm practices produce record yields of quality grains.
Formed in 1998 as the consolidation of three local grain cooperatives, Topflight Grain Cooperative is located in east central Illinois, serving grain producers in Piatt, Macon, Moultrie, Douglas & Champaign counties. Permanent storage capacity of the eighteen facilities is 22 million bushels of grain. Annual volume of the company is 32 million bushels with grain sales exceeding $100 million.
Due to the optimal location of Topflight Grian on three rail lines and its location just 25 miles from Decatur, Illinois, world headquarters of ADM Growmark and Tate & Lyle corn and soybean processing plants, Topflight Grain elevators are in a position for timely grain marketing from receipt of grain to its final destination. The numerous trucking firms that serve all of Topflight's grain elevators ensure prompt delivery of truck grain sold in the nearby processing markets.
Topflight Grain facilities at Bement, Milmine and Monticello are located directly on the Norfolk Southern rail main line, allowing shipments of grain into Decatur, movement to the Illinois river, east coast, or the export market. Through a reciprocal agreement, switching on the Illinois Central affords the opportunity for export markets via the Gulf of Mexico. The Gulf of Mexico is also accessible from the Cisco grain facility, where Topflight Grain owns the 13.5-mile rail road that connects Cisco to the Decatur markets and the IC rail service. The IC market is also available to the Seymour facility of Topflight Grain for a direct shipment to the southern markets. The CSXT rail line serves Topflight Grain facilities at Pierson Station, Atwood, and LaPlace, reaching the south-eastern US grain markets.
Topflight Grain Cooperative, Inc. is a state licensed grain dealer. The licenses are protected thorough annual audits by the State of Illinois. Year-end financial and grain audits are prepared by certified accountants, and presented at the Company's annual stockholder meeting. Topflight Grain is also a member of the Illinois Grain Insurance Corporation which insures grain owners against grain elevator failure.
