About Valley United

In January, the merger between Reynolds United and Halstad Elevator Company was completed. Minnesota farmers gained access to locally sourced bulk chemicals and fertilizer, and North Dakota farmers acquired ownership in the Alton Grain Terminal. Nearly 90% of farmers on both sides of the river voted in favor of the merger, which also gives the new Valley United more buying power and efficiencies of scale. The combined company’s energy and resources are now squarely focused on serving our customers and our communities.

Seed, seed treatments, fertilizer, crop protection, scouting, custom application plus precision farming technology and expertise.

Local bids for cash grain, forward-pricing strategies, grain market analysis and commentary plus delivery options for dry edible beans.
We help facilitate loans from among several company-sponsored options, including Secure by Winfield and John Deere Financial.
Our Community
Part of being a good neighbor is giving back to the communities we serve, both financially and through local volunteer work.

Fall soil sampling leads to better fertilizer decisions next spring.

There’s no better time to pull soil samples than in the fall, right after harvest. Fields are clean and crews can work quickly. Applying lime, phosphorus and potassium in the fall can also help make sure you’re ready to plant again next spring.

The more we can get done in the fall, the happier I am going into winter. We want to be planting corn in late April, not waiting to spread fertilizer.
– John Wooster, Buxton

Grid soil sampling in the fall also gives growers and agronomists plenty of time to complete planting prescriptions for every acre, including corn hybrid or soybean variety selection, plant populations, variable rate nitrogen application, micro nutrients and more.


Higher storage capacity at Valley United.

Valley United’s combined facilities at Reynolds, Buxton, Halstad and Alton provides area farmers with more grain storage and delivery options.

Grain Facilities

Our Reynolds and Buxton locations combined offer nearly three million bushels of grain storage capacity.  We also have direct shipments to the Alton Grain terminal and our Halstad location. 

Grain Marketing

The grain marketing team at Valley United is affiliated with CHS Hedging. We can help you put together a marketing plan to take some of the risk out of your annual grain sales, while leaving open the possibility of selling grain when cash prices are rising. Call or stop by our Buxton or Reynold’s offices.
