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.

Waiting on a Rally?

On the left is a seasonal chart of December corn from April to August. So far, we have started the 2019 Spring like the past three years. Nobody knows what trade and weather will do to the price of corn in the coming weeks, but the past three years we have seen the high set in early summer and trended down the closer we get to harvest. Call your local Smithfield Grain originator today to talk more about your marketing options.

Are You at Risk of Yield Loss?



When wheat is in the flowering stage, this a critical time to watch for head scab. Head scab can dramatically affect grain quality and take bushels from your bottom line. There is a real time tracking tool that can help you identify if you are at risk and if you should apply a fungicide. For more information check out the link from Fusarium Head Blight Prediction Center (http://www.wheatscab.psu.edu/) or call Adam Lassiter at (252)326-1231.
