ABOUT

Growth Feeds Growth

Smithfield Grain understands that our success is tied to the success of our suppliers, and no single supply base contributes more to our feed manufacturing than farmer grain. More than ever before, we are partners in growth. Our growth increases grain demand, while growth in farmers’ yields and efficiency increases the local grain available to our hogs. This website is the next step in recognizing that partnership. Growing businesses need new tools. Smithfieldgrain.com is a website where you can get current market prices, weather updates and everything you need to know about doing business with Smithfield Grain. It’s just one more way we’re working together to grow your business.

Many farmers have decided to take advantage of this opportunity and plan to grow this treated seed for a much lower cost than normal (our seed is ~50% cheaper than the alternative) in exchange for our highest basis throughout the growing season guaranteed!  Our at-cost drying programs will allow these farmers to harvest in late May and quickly plant soybeans to maximize yields.  Program participants will also be offered special deals throughout the wheat growing season to help improve their crop and their bottom line!!

New Wheat Seed program

Last year's program was a success. Farmers enjoyed planting discounted, high quality seed, and harvesting a great wheat crop. This year we have the same popular, proven varieties that will surely be a success in your farming plan. The farmers who participated in this program harvested their wheat crop and quickly planted soybeans. Early harvested wheat was sent to our locations where there was no drying discount - getting the wheat up quickly removed the threat of bad weather. It also allowed soybeans to be planted sooner which will result in higher yields this fall. The double-crop strategy will result in higher yields from both crops, maximizing profits for your business, and improving the land as part of your rotation for future crops. It's time to sign up to buy wheat seed to plant this fall - call us today or click here for more program details.
