Grain


At Alliance Ag & Grain, we offer competitive pricing to our farmers by maintaining relationships with multiple grain buyers and keeping on top of trends across a number of markets. There’s a lot of volatility in the grain market, so having a solid marketing plan in place is key to your success and profitability. We’re here to help you work through your production costs and take a layered approach to market opportunities by offering a wide variety of services to provide several purchase contract options.

We recently added Fowler, Minneola and Bloom and now operate 19 different grain locations in southern Kansas with a total licensed capacity of 26.5 million bushels to ensure that we can meet your storage needs. Included within those locations are two 110-car unit train facilities, located in Wright, KS (BNSF Railway) and Haviland, KS (Union Pacific). As one of only a few companies across Kansas with two train loaders located on separate rail lines, we have the ability to transport grain across the country.

If you store grain on-farm, we have a network of industry connections to help you get the most for your grain. Call Grain Division Merchandising Manager Blake Connelly in the Spearville office for bids to be picked up at your location or delivered to regional end users.
