I talk to people who own, manage, operate, and work for commercial grain businesses in North America. There are a lot of interesting stories out there and I want to hear them.
Duncan Ferguson - Glen Gordon Farms, Williamstown ON
Bagpipes, curling, the syrup business, a syrup heist, limited edition grain meme t-shirts, and why it seems like every Ontario farmer has a Twitter account. Oh, and some stuff about the grain business too.
Rob Cogdill - Cogdill Farm Supply, Dunlap IA
Basis trader, PhD, Cheerleader, Mayor, Near Infrared Spectroscopist, and Gate Salesman
Marilyn Sullivan - Kelchen Grain, Edgewood IA
Running a grain business with 5 siblings, trusting software (or not), and becoming a force in your marketplace.
John Burkett - McCullough Grain, Sharpsville PA
From an archery shop to the farm, competing for a spot on the U.S. Olympic team, living in the boss's basement, and a distaste for air travel.
Burt Etchison - Stewart Grain, Stewart IN
Population: 2, a 13-layer cake, working on the railroad, and growing up in the grain business.
