Serving Montana Agriculture and growing prosperity under the Big Sky

Commodity Dealer and Warehouse Program

.

Welcome to the Montana Department of Agriculture Commodity Dealer and Warehouse Program

The  Montana Agricultural Warehouse, Commodity Dealer and Grain Standards Act  requires people or businesses who buy and/or store commodities to be licensed and provide surety to help protect farmers from non-payment for agricultural commodities. Separate licenses are required for commodity dealers and commodity warehouse operators.

The program protects producers and the industry by auditing the records of commodity dealers and warehouses, investigating complaints, pursuing enforcement of the Act and providing education and assistance to the grain industry and the public.
