After spending years working for larger brokerage firms, Joe Vaclavik founded Standard Grain in 2012. He wanted to operate a commodity brokerage business that catered to each customer individually, and wanted to deal with all of his customers personally. Standard Grain works with farm and livestock operations across the United States. Our Standard Grain Morning Update is sent to customers each morning and has become a favorite among farmers.
Joe Vaclavik is the founder and president of Standard Grain, Inc. He deals directly with all of our customers. Joe spends much of his time on the road, travelling to farms, feedlots and grain elevators for meetings and speaking engagements. Joe provides market commentary for news outlets including: CNBC, Fox Business, The Wall Street Journal, US Farm Report, Ag Day, Reuters, Dow Jones, RuralRadio80 (SiriusXM), Bloomberg, Sky News (Australia), KFRM (Kansas), WILL (Illinois), Linder Farm Network (Minnesota) and many more.
