A farmer-owned business for everyone

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.

Dec 18, 2023 | United Cooperative-Beaver Dam
As 2023 comes to an end, I can't help but reflect on the roller coaster growing season we had this year. Planting conditions were as good as ever before across all of Wisconsin, which led to the fastest planting season ever. Then we all just struggled to catch rains. Most of ...

The cooperative brings value to our communities

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.
