Marketing and Transportation of Grain By Local Cooperatives
AbstractA total of 2,060 local cooperative associations handled 4.7 billion bushels of grain during the 1982-83 marketing year. This is about 41 percent of all grain sold off-farm during the year. Cooperative grain storage capacity totaled 2.5 billion bushels. Corn, at 1 .5 billion bushels, ranked as the leading grain marketed; wheat was second at slightly under 1.0 billion. More than half of the grain sold by local cooperatives moved by truck.
