About the Organization For over 100 years, our goal at The DeLong Co., Inc. has been to provide information, products and services to the farming industry. In addition to being a grain elevator and major supplier of food grains domestically and internationally, we also provide seed, fertilizer and chemical inputs and services for growers in Wisconsin and Illinois.

The DeLong Co. operates two warehouses that are used to wholesale and distribute various feed and pet products to dealers in Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana.

At the time our business was founded, the principal crops grown by our customers were hay, wheat, oats, barley, malting barley and corn. Over a long period of time, our business has adapted and moved to fill the needs of local farmers. Corn became the dominant cash crop in our region and we began providing feed concentrates specially formulated for various types of livestock. We also added corn drying facilities, soybean facilities and more recently, vegetable and specialty Identity Preserved crop programs to our business.

Headquartered in Clinton, Wisconsin, our business operates locations around the U.S. and comprises five divisions of agricultural sales and service: agronomy, grain, seed, wholesale distribution and transportation.
