OABA Sustaining Sponsor Spotlight: GROWMARK

Spotlight Header Platinum Growmark

GROWMARK is an agricultural cooperative providing agronomy, energy, facility planning, and logistic products and services, as well as grain marketing and risk management services throughout North America. Based in Bloomington, Illinois, Growmark owns the FS trademark which is used by affiliated member cooperatives.

In the 1920s, Farm Bureau members formed the original cooperatives that make up today’s GROWMARK. The cooperative provides a reliable supply of inputs to the farm, control quality of products, reduced costs of purchases, provide competitive grain marketing and assure local ownership and control. 

With more than 8,500 employees throughout North America including all subsidiary and member cooperatives, GROWMARK has experienced growth in territory and market share as an outgrowth of their continued pursuit of their mission: to improve long-term profitability of their member-owners.

From GROWMARK: “OABA plays an important role in advocating for all agribusinesses in the policy arena. Especially with the heightened concern about water quality here in Ohio, having a strong advocate in OABA that has the ear of important policymakers is critical to the future of our industry.”
