KEEPING OUR CUSTOMERS COZY

You’ll never run out of propane or fuel oil when you sign up with our delivery team

Location Update

Ripon North is open and fully functional. 

Ripon South:
The Ripon South location sustained major damage to several of our structures during a storm at the end of July.  Due to this damage, the Ripon South location will not be able to take any soybeans at harvest time.  If you have soybeans contracted, you will be able to deliver the contracted soybeans to other United Cooperative locations.  Please contact us if you have any questions regarding your contracts. We will be able to take corn this fall harvest - both wet and dry corn can be delivered to the Ripon South location. We understand that these alternate plans will be challenging, but we are committed to accommodating you as best as we can to navigate this harvest season.

Oshkosh: 
Clairville Rd is closed at HWY K, all grain traffic needs to come north on Clairville Road from HWY 91.

A farmer-owned business for everyone

You probably already know United Cooperative supplies the feed, seed and fertilizer products farmers need to run their businesses. What you may not know is that we also supply propane and home heating oil to both rural and town customers. Or that we own and operate multiple Cenex fueling stations and convenience stores. Or that we are part owners in three ethanol plants.

Part of our cooperative mission is to make our rural communities great places to live. If we identify a need, we try to be part of the solution, whether it’s through our financial commitments, service on local boards and councils or employee volunteer efforts. We’re here for the long haul, and pride ourselves on meeting or exceeding your expectations every time you call. It’s why we say, “Rely on us” in all of our cooperative branding.

We don’t see ourselves simply as product or service vendors, but rather as community solution providers who work for you, our member-owners.

Safe, dependable propane delivery

As we head into the coldest part of winter, you can count on the energy team at United Cooperative to keep your tank filled with this clean-burning and economical heating fuel. Whether you own your tank or rent from us, we’ll make sure you get the propane you need for your home, shop or livestock buildings. And safety is always our first priority.

We have options for one-time delivery, regularly-scheduled deliveries and even electronic tank monitoring equipment to let you know when you’re running low.

We can help you determine what pays—and what doesn’t

Solid grain prices make it a lot easier to earn a profit on cash grain. Unfortunately, that’s not the case everyday. The goal now is to grow as many bushels as you can profitably on every acre you farm. In some cases, that might mean switching to better-performing corn hybrids, soybean and alfalfa varieties. It could mean increasing crop nutrients on your best ground, and perhaps cutting back on poorer soils. It means keeping a close eye on disease and insect pressures before investing in costly rescue treatments.

Truth be told, it probably means all of these things. And that’s where the experienced, professional field agronomists at United Cooperative can help.  LEARN MORE

Safe Driving Practices Around Farm Equipment

Oct 07, 2021

Since 2011, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation has recorded more than 1,300 crashes involving agricultural equipment that resulted in 678 injuries and 26 deaths. Three scenarios drivers and farmers should know how to handle are passing farm equipment, left-hand turns and braking distance needed at controlled intersections.

Preparing Your Propane-Powered Home for Winter

Oct 06, 2021

Temperatures are dropping, which means many homeowners are turning up the thermostat to heat their homes. For those who heat their homes with propane, preparation can help make  for a safe and easy transition. 

Reduce Your Feed Costs by Working to Improve Efficiencies and Effectiveness

Oct 05, 2021

In todays’ business environment, your cooperative faces unprecedented challenges as we work to serve our patrons. Supply chain problems, ingredient and materials shortages, labor/staff limitations, rising costs of fuel, high cost of replacing equipment, and regulatory mandates are constant stressors on our business.

Preparing for Harvest

Oct 04, 2021

United Cooperative is staying with the changes we made last year to our storage fee structure.  As a reminder we no longer have a minimum storage fee for commodities.

What Do We Do with Tar Spot?

Oct 04, 2021

In several areas, Tar Spot has wreaked havoc with corn yield this year as it did in the southwest and the other regions of southern Wisconsin in 2018. Yield reductions can be very severe, with yield reductions up to 100 bushels per acre if Tar Spot hits early and corn doesn’t black layer!

Events

The cooperative brings value to our communities

Although you may not think about us much outside of the busy spring planting and fall harvesting seasons, your local cooperative is an engine of economic activity. We provide full-time and seasonal employment opportunities to members of the communities we serve. We deliver the feed, seed, fuel, fertilizer and crop protection farmers need to run their businesses. And as part of United Cooperative, we return a share of our annual profits to our member-owners, in the form of patronage, which then circulates back through our local businesses, churches, golf courses, social organizations and more.

Giving back to the community is one of the principles of cooperative ownership, and United Cooperative takes this responsibility very seriously. From financial commitments in the form of local scholarships, support for FFA and 4-H chapters, as well as donations to local needs including fire and ambulance equipment; to food pantries and recreational opportunities for kids. We also encourage our employees to volunteer in their communities, as coaches, mentors, board members and first responders.
