General Info: AgVentures NW is a limited liability company that is wholly owned by Reardan Grain Growers, Inc and Odessa Union Warehouse Cooperative. In 2005, both companies began looking into new ways to make their businesses more efficient. The retirement of RGG’s manager coupled with OUW’s willingness to explore business options presented a timely opportunity for both. For two years, the companies were co-managed and in May of 2007, the new “umbrella” company was formed. AgVentures NW employs and manages all personnel and facilities used in the business operations for the two cooperatives. Even though marketing and transportation are combined to optimize logistics and sales, each company maintains its individual capital and equity structure. Since joining together, the common interests of the collective boards have been well served. AgVentures NW has exceeded expectations even in these years of dry conditions and poor economy. The combined storage capacity of elevators managed by AgVentures NW is over 15.5 million bushels. Our 5 offices in Reardan, Harrington, Davenport, Ephrata, and Odessa provide local and accessible resources for current information and valuable marketing services. Odessa Union Warehouse and Reardan Grain Growers are farmer owned cooperatives offering grain storage and marketing services located in Eastern Washington State. Our service area includes over 1, 400 members and 48 separate storage facilities at 22 locations in Spokane, Lincoln, Adams, and Grant counties. Combined with our marketing and storage services, we also offer products such as certified and common seed, marketing counsel, futures and options brokerage, and farm storage marketing. Over a dozen locally contracted and 5 company owned trucks can readily and efficiently move grain from our facilities or yours to market destinations. Our 9 unit train loading facilities and ownership in a barge loading operation through Co Grain on the Snake River greatly enhance the marketing flexibility we offer.
