AgGateway’s Grain & Feed Council consists of companies in the grain, feed, oilseed and renewable fuel segments of the agricultural industry or in the industries or segments serving these segments in electronic business. The council represents, at a high level, the supply chain from delivery of grain from the producer to the delivery of feed to the producers.


To identify, develop and implement standards and guidelines intended to increase eConnectivity efficiencies in the grain, feed and processing industries. The focus is on promoting food chain safety and confidence through review and recommendation of improved business processes, thereby reducing supply chain costs and increasing profitability through electronic business efficiencies in the grain and feed processing industries from producer to processor.

Goals & Objectives

  1. Promote the value of AgGateway and the accomplishments and activities of the Grain & Feed Council both internally and externally (non-members) to retain and acquire members.
  2. Increase multi-level and cross-functional engagement and understanding within member companies to foster council participation among new and current membership.
  3. Increase eBusiness connections among membership.
  4. Improve the grain and feed Industries’ knowledge and understanding of eBusiness, the business efficiencies and reporting benefits to be gained through connectivity. 


The council has put considerable work into tracking commodity movement for field-to-process through the CART Project. These standards are expected to help the industry address traceability and the regulatory needs of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). The council is continuing traceability work with AgGateway's cross-council Traceability Working Group, especially in the Food/Feed Safety sub-group. The council continues to promote CART deliverables and successes to AgGateway membership and the industry to increase participation and implementation.
