Jason Meyer

Hedging Strategist

With over 20 years of experience in the grain industry, Jason is excited to join the AgMarket.Net team.

Jason grew up on a small family farm operation in Northeast Iowa.  He earned his Series 3 Brokerage license before he graduated from Northwestern College in 2001.  Jason’s career in agriculture started out at the Chicago Board of Trade as a retail broker for Walsh Trading.  Seeing the need to learn more about the cash side of the business, Jason spent 18 months in Bloomington, Illinois with Advance Trading to hone his skills in cash-grain trading.  Jason put these skills to test as a grain originator for the Dodge City Coop for 3 years.  This experience allowed him to become a grain merchandiser for Farmers Coop Elevator in Beresford, SD.

After 5 years, an opportunity to grow as a leader presented itself when Jason became the Vice President of Grain for Western Iowa Coop in Hornick, IA (a position held until a merger with NEW Cooperative in 2015).

With a growing young family, Jason decided to stay put and began his most recent work as a grain originator/merchandiser for CVA in Hinton, Iowa.  Throughout his stops in the cooperative world, Jason always maintained his Series 3 license as he saw the need to help the farmer navigate the futures and options world.  When the opportunity presented itself to join a team dedicated to helping the farmer in both brokerage and consulting, Jason was excited for the chance to work in a more direct role with the producer.

Jason has resided in Sioux City since 2012 raising 3 children who are active in baseball, volleyball, dance and hockey.  Jason is currently a board member for the Regina Roth Applied Agriculture and Food Studies Program for Morningside University.  He also closely works with the Iowa Corn Growers Association to help support agriculture as he is a graduate of I LEAD Class 9.  In his free time, Jason enjoys watching his kids participate in sports, watching sports and documentaries, trying new foods and traveling.
