Standard Grain provides professional commodity brokerage and consulting services. Customers include farms, feedlots, and commercial grain operations across the United States.
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.
