Working with Rooster Ag’ for the sale of grain facilities was an easy process. Joe and his team created a comprehensive market analysis of the assets and recommended price levels fair for both the buyer and seller. Rooster Ag’ then helped push scheduling and sale execution so all parties could move forward with future opportunities in a timely manner. Joe Ludwig and his team at  Rooster Ag’ should continue to be successful based on their resources, market knowledge, and positive attitude.-Kyle Cresswell
