Meet Shiliah Spaulding, Hobarton Grain Solutions Team

Providing the grain marketing solutions you need starts with reliable specialists you can trust. We’re pleased to announce a new addition to MaxYield Cooperative’s grain team, Shiliah Spaulding.

Shiliah SpauldingWith her farm background, client-care experience, and grain accounting expertise, Shiliah Spaulding brings a client-focused perspective to grain origination. In addition to offering clients competitive prices for grain supplied to the Hobarton location, Shiliah also provides grain marketing solutions for clients in MaxYield’s central trade area.

Shiliah joined MaxYield in May of 2012 after earning her degree in ag sales and operations management from North Iowa Area Community College. This Iowa native grew up on a farm near Battle Creek, where her family raises corn, soybeans, and Angus cattle in a cow-calf operation. Growing up with five older brothers, Shiliah enjoyed working on the farm, where she continues to raise cattle, goats, and sheep.

Livestock kept Shiliah busy each summer at the Ida County Fair, where she also earned top honors in the extemporaneous speaking contest. This allowed her to compete at the Iowa State Fair, where she also participated in the queen contest after she was named the Ida County Fair Queen in 2010.

This wasn’t her first brush with royalty, for Shiliah also reigned as the 2009 Iowa Honey Queen. This opportunity allowed her to speak to more than 10,000 people across Iowa about bees and honey—topics she knows well, since she has been involved with beekeeping since she was 10 years old.

“I like working with people,” Shiliah says. “At MaxYield, I look forward to getting to know more of the clients and providing them with grain marketing solutions.”
