Growers are experts in making things grow. As a full-service cooperative, Mid-Iowa Cooperative provides the products, services, ag business resources, and technical expertise to help our local producers thrive in central and east-central Iowa.

Our diverse client portfolio reaches across the state to serve 850 members. We’re also the largest direct-ship farm-to-market grain procurement company in the Midwest.

Our mission is to create value to maximize your profits. 

Our Farmers

We know trust is earned—never given. Since the merger in 1996 that created Mid-Iowa Cooperative, we’ve experienced 650% growth, putting us into the top 10% of all Iowa cooperatives in terms of sales and profitability.

For more than 75 years, generations of farmers have counted on Mid-Iowa Cooperative, which is rooted in Iowa agriculture. As a farmer-owned, full-service cooperative, we offer you solutions from row-crop management and marketing to feed and fuel.

Our Staff

The members of our staff are professionals in their field who can provide you with in-depth, reliable consulting support for each area of your business. We have six licensed commodity brokers and six licensed crop insurance agents on staff, with more than 70 years of combined experience. We’re ready to provide customized business solutions to help your operation grow.

Membership Application

Cooperatives are organized not only to strengthen bargaining power, to maintain access to competitive markets and to capitalize on new market opportunities, but also to obtain needed products and services on a competitive basis. Membership in a cooperative can improve income opportunities, reduce operating costs and provide risk management.

Farmer cooperatives exist for the mutual benefit of their farmer members, with earnings returned on a patronage basis. Such patronage dividends help boost the income of farmers directly or by reducing the effective cost of the goods and services provided. Mid-Iowa Cooperative is farmer-owned and controlled, governed by a board of directors elected by its farmer members – one member, one vote. It’s a unique accountability.
