Who We Are


Kluis Commodity Advisors (KCA), alongside First Capitol Ag, is a full-service broker with a combined 70 years of experience in the agricultural hedging business, assisting producers and processors with their grain marketing and risk management needs.

Our advisory and brokerage team possess deep agricultural backgrounds – we know how to support farmers in developing their marketing plan to navigate volatile grain markets.

KCA expanded into publishing with the publication of the first ‘Kluis Farmer’s Almanac’ in 2008, providing quality research to keep farmers in the know. Complementing this focus on research, ‘Kluis Grain Trading Academy’ began in 2012, providing a three-year curriculum-based marketing school.

KCA’s experienced team is regularly featured in major publications, including Successful Farming, and preferred by the nation’s top agricultural lenders, as they work to uphold a simple philosophy, Marketing Solutions for Farmers.

Kluis Commodity Advisors is a member of the National Futures Association (“NFA”).

Discipline & Integrity

Our Focus

One of the most challenging elements of control in a marketing plan is emotion. It can trump your logic and keep
you from doing the right thing. Our staff works to lead you through a disciplined marketing system, all the while keeping your best interests at heart.

We systematically manage price risk and opportunities, and intentionally avoid trying to be all things to all people. This is our single focus.
