On-the-go marketing tool added as Farm Bureau member benefit

By Ali Seys

With the many challenges facing agriculture today, Illinois Farm Bureau hopes to ease some of the stress with a new member discount for GrainCoat®, a farm marketing and inventory tracking tool available via web and iPhone.

“We’re continually looking for ways to add to our robust program of benefits and capitalize on new ways to help farmers in their day-to-day,” said Melissa Rhode, marketing director at Illinois Farm Bureau. “With the unusually wet year we’ve had in 2019 and other challenges facing agriculture, we’re pleased to offer assistance on a tool that may help them save time and manage their marketing opportunities.”

GrainCoat® offers a solution to problems experienced by active farming members today. Here are three ways it could benefit your farm:

Timely decisions – All of the information you need is in one place, making it easier to make efficient and timely grain marketing decisions. It tracks farm-specific historical, current and future data to help you make the best decisions for your farm.

Simplified process – The dashboard allows you to visually see your inventories and make quick decisions, but also allows you to holistically look at your delivery schedules. Through big-picture-views and reminders of delivery dates, GrainCoat® helps keep you on track throughout the year. 

Prioritized information – GrainCoat® was created with the farmer in mind. Multi-year, multi-crop views allow you to get a big picture look at your operation and allows you to prioritize marketing decisions. With user-customized settings, it prioritizes what options are specific to your operation. For year-end, it prioritizes tax information by providing a quick yearly report, including inventory values, average sales prices, and total revenue.

Members can take the next step by visiting GrainCoat.com and entering discount code ILFB19 during the registration process to receive $20 off the one-time fee.
