Roggen Farmers Elevator Association has long been a trusted partner when it comes to helping local farmers sell their grain in Northeastern Colorado. Our Grain Division has developed a loyal customer base by helping producers navigate the volatile grain market and keep on top of daily trends so they can take advantage of opportunities when they present themselves.

With all of the uncertainty in the grain market, it’s important to have a solid marketing plan in place to maximize your profitability. That’s why we also help you sort through your production costs and take a layered approach to market opportunities by offering an array of services and providing a number of contracting options.

We operate four different grain locations in the area and also have put-through agreements with partnering elevators, giving us a total licensed capacity of more than 5 million bushels to ensure that we can meet your storage needs. We are also 50/50 partners with Ardent Mills in the ownership of Commerce City Grain facilities, which have a capacity of 5.3 million bushels that our customers can utilize.

Grain Purchasing Hours & Transportation

We pride ourselves on delivering strong execution at Roggen Farmers Elevator. Grain purchasing hours are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at most of our grain locations, unless markets are closed. (Hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Watkins.) We also take sell orders so we can work your offers during overnight trade.

The safety of our customers and employees is always an important focus at Roggen Farmers Elevator Association. We work hard to make sure each of our grain facilities is compliant with all OSHA rules and regulations to provide a safe environment for everyone who visits.

If you store grain on-farm, we have a network of industry connections to help you get the most for your grain, and we can pick it up and deliver it to one of our elevators. Call one of our grain merchandisers for bids picked up on farm.
