WELCOME TO UNITED COOPERATIVE

Serving the farms and rural communities of Wisconsin and beyond

ABOUT US

WE'RE HERE TO SERVE YOU

From seed and fertilizer to grain storage and marketing, we’re ready when you are

AGRONOMY

KEEPING OUR CUSTOMERS COZY

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

HOME HEAT

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.

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.

2020: A Year We Will Long Remember

Dec 15, 2020

2020 will be a year we would all like to forget, but a year we will long remember. We witnessed a worldwide pandemic, social unrest and national leadership change.  We continue to fight the coronavirus and the economic and social impact it has had on all of us. Unfortunately, it appears the lingering effects will flow over into 2021. As I mentioned in my last article, many great people have risen to the occasion to provide important services to those in need. I want to thank the employees at United Cooperative for all their hard work and effort during this time for meeting the expectations of our customers. I would also like to thank our patrons for “Relying on Us” through this difficult journey. We are grateful for the faith and trust you have placed in United Cooperative.
