Grain dealer licenses expire on August 31 of each year. No person may transfer or assign a license to another entity. Fees for a license obtained during a license year are not prorated.

A Wisconsin Grain Dealer License is not required if:

  • You pay cash on delivery for the grain.
  • You purchase grain from producers for your own use as feed or seed and spend less than $400,000 per license year.

Grain includes the following: Corn, soybeans, wheat, oats, barley, canola, rye, buckwheat, grain sorghum (milo), flaxseed, sunflower seed, triticale, and mixed grain as defined in 7 CFR810.801.

When renewing your license you must submit your application and make full payment for all applicable fees by the expiration on 8/31. Once you submit your completed application online, an invoice will be generated for the amount of your license fees for which you can also make payment online. Certain late fees and surcharges will be due if EITHER your application or fees are not received by expiration of your license on 8/31. To avoid any late fees and surcharges we recommend registering through MyDATCP and submitting your application and payment online by 8/31.

The regulations pertaining to grain dealers under Chapter 126, Wisconsin Statutes and Chapter ATCP 99, Wisconsin Administrative Code, are intended to help protect grain producers from default by a grain dealer.
