Premier Cooperative is an Illinois farmer owned cooperative providing agricultural commodities and energy products. We give the first step into the grain marketing channel. We offer outstanding service that is fast, efficient, and technologically advanced; delivered always with integrity. Our goal is to enhance the business of our farmer owners while supporting the communities in which we all live and work.

Premier Cooperative facilities, where grain initially enters the marketing channels, are maintained by full time millwright crews. The network of railroads and interstate highways serving our trade territory are indicative to the complete shipping capabilities of Premier Cooperative. The early Illinois Prairie settlers efforts to grow and market their crop, have been instrumental in making Premier Cooperative an important force in serving the world food economy as a farm cooperative with solid resources and modern facilities.
