Midwest Market Management

Pat McLaughlin isn’t new to the grain marketing. But he is new to an office in downtown Eldora. He recently moved his business - Midwest Market Management - to an office space on Edgington Avenue.

As a manager of several central Iowa co-ops, Pat McLaughlin was already marketing for farmers. After some 20 years of it, and at the urging of a friend, he decided to get into brokering.

“When you come from the agriculture background and you worked with farmers for 21 years helping them market their grain, it wasn’t anything new,” McLaughlin said. “It was just switching sides of the desk.”
