Located in Thief River Falls, MN, Farmers Co-op Grain & Seed supports Ag professionals throughout the midwest with seed services and crop protection. "We provide farmers with tools to improve their wheat, barley, corn and bean harvest," says James Nygaard, Operations Manager at Farmers Co-op Grain & Seed. By having a good relationship with seed distributors, Co-op members are able to receive the lowest price for their wheat, corn and soybean seeds.


In order to be seen as a reliable seed provider to their customers, Farmers Co-op Grain & Seed wanted to incorporate reliable market data and information into their website. They decided to explore different options for the content they were seeking.

"When we were looking for commodity market data and information for our site, we were looking for a couple of key things," says Nygaard. "We really wanted to provide our clients with a market overview where they could get commodity data, local weather forecasts and maps, and Ag news and market commentary. In addition to that, we wanted to show our site’s visitors cash bids.
