Chapin Elevator is licensed to buy, sell, and store grain with the State of Illlinois. The elevator deals primarily with corn, soybeans, wheat, and oats, and in the recent past the list also included white corn. The elevator has two facilities, one located in Chapin, Illinois and the other in Riggston Illinois; however, the Riggston facility is manned only during harvest.

A large part of the Chapin Elevator grain marketing program is direct grain marketing, where farmers deliver grain to a river terminal and are paid by Chapin Elevator. An advantage of mrketing through Chapin Elevator is the security of dealing with a local firm rather than a large, possibly multi-national conglomerate.

 

Feed is an intregal part of Chapin Elevator business. The feed mill is used daily to produce custom blended beef, swine, and horse rations. This feed is fed to registered livestock, commercial operations and is used in all phases of reproduction and growth.

Chapin Elevator inventories and sells feed from two major suppliers, Advanced Nutrition and Biozyme Products. Advanced Nutritionis made by ADM and has feed and ingredients for all species of animals. Biozyme is headquartered in St. Joseph, Missouri and deals in ruminant nutrition and minerals to aid rapid animal growth and development.

 

Seed sales are also a very important part of Chapin Elevator's business. Dekalb seed corn and Asgrow seed beans make up the majority of the elevator seed program. Chapin Elevator also has access to several small seed distributors for your grass, hay, lawn and conservation seeding needs.
