About MGFA

Mission Statement

To serve the agribusiness industry with integrity, respect and innovation in its programs and services.

What is Minnesota Grain & Feed Association?

It is a voluntary, non-profit association, composed of competing grain elevator firms and other agribusinesses involved in the grain, feed, fertilizer and farm supply business.  The Minnesota Grain and Feed Association was established in 1907 to provide information, education and representation for an emerging country elevator industry, a function that still exists today.  The association services, programs and policies are directed by a nine member board of directors and several committees.  The association has grown to become one of the largest, most effective elevator and grain trade associations in the upper Midwest.
