Corn and Feed Grains
In 1922, Lansing operated as a corn merchandiser solely serving the Upper Midwest. Since then, we’ve expanded to provide many grains, serving customers throughout North America and internationally. Corn is our largest volume commodity with nearly 1 billion bushels handled annually. Lansing’s merchandisers provide grains for feed, food and energy customers alike. Other feed grains are supplied to livestock feeders, processors and exporters throughout the United States, Mexico and Canada. Though much has changed as we’ve grown throughout the years, our focus on successful long-term relationships and being your business partner of choice remains constant.
