Marketing Opportunities

The Idaho Wheat Commission often receives calls from customers interested in wheat with specific milling characteristics.  We work with elevator operators throughout the state to take advantage of these opportunities.  We also endeavor to educate elevator operators on trends in the industry that will work to their benefit.  Not all elevators are the same.  Each elevator operator has developed a set of customers and grain needs may vary from elevator to elevator.  We encourage you to maintain ties and have periodic conversations with at least a couple of elevator operators so you can know where your wheat will find its best market.
