Agribusiness & Cooperatives

Since we opened our doors in 1964, one of our core focuses has been serving the agribusiness industry. With clients in eight states and more than 300 years of combined staff experience, we’ve established a strong reputation for forming partnerships with our agricultural clients as well as performing consistent, quality audits.

We recognize the uniqueness of all of our agribusiness and cooperative clients and work to fulfill their specific individual needs. For example, if you have grain bins, we will gladly put on our boots and measure inventories for a grain audit right beside you. Through risk management and peer comparisons and evaluations, our expert cooperative auditors are fully able to help you build stable balance sheets and reach your financial goals more effectively. We’re experts in our field and can be experts in your field as well.
