Kelly Herrick

Commodity Merchandising Risk Management Consultant
Advance Trading Inc

Kelly Herrick was raised on a dairy farm in South Dakota. After attending college at South Dakota State University and earning a bachelor of science degree, Kelly accepted employment at a local farmers cooperative providing producers agronomic advice. Eventually, he accepted a fresh opportunity to grow a grain and agronomy location with a large cooperative in the Red River Valley of North Dakota. This provided Kelly with an operational base of experience in grain operations and origination. During Kelly’s tenure at the cooperative, the location expanded its rail and truck receiving capacities as well as established a producer base to capture fresh marketing opportunities. After several years of work experience in the upper Midwest, Kelly accepted a grain division manager’s position with a cooperative in Southwest Kansas. This widely irrigated agricultural environment which was tributary to a concentrated feedlot population allowed Kelly to concentrate on diverse risk management opportunities. The local truck markets were a good compliment to Kelly’s rail marketing experience further diversifying his cash trading experience. Following 3 production seasons, Kelly moved to Illinois and accepted his current position as a risk management consultant for Advance Trading. Kelly has been able to utilize his diverse background to provide a complete risk management perspective for his clients. Kelly’s base of clients is primarily positioned in the western HRW belt and western Corn Belt. He has increased his focus to include international clients in an educational and trading environment. Kelly is able to provide a unique perspective to the entire production chain by way of his nearly 20 years of work experience. In addition to the grain risk management positioning, Kelly enjoys working with his clients on business structures, strategic planning and growth opportunities. Kelly has been with Advance Trading for nearly 17 years as a risk management consultant. In his free time he enjoys reading and traveling.
