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 91, all grain traffic needs to come south on Clairville Road from HWY K, then take a left on Compass Way (brand new road and not on Google yet) and follow that around to get to our new north driveway for entry and exit.

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.

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

This Harvest, Control What You Can Control

Sep 14, 2021

There are countless factors outside farmers’ control: commodity markets rise and fall, weather cooperates or doesn’t, consumers make purchase decisions that affect supply decisions. But even with all these variables, there’s one thing over which every farmer has total control: their level of preparation.
 

Get Rewarded For Your Show Animal

Aug 09, 2021

In order to support more members' children and their fair projects, United Cooperative introduced our Fair Animal Project Program three years ago. 

United Cooperative will give $50 for a large animal or $15 for a small animal to every members' child that submitted a photo of them with their fair animal.

Many moving parts need to be in place to get the best quality silage at harvest. With harvest quickly approaching, consider these four tips to help inform your silage harvest strategy.

Reduce Corn Silage Shrink with Good Management

Jul 30, 2021

We often speak of corn silage yield from the standpoint of the crop being grown and harvested in the field.  Now at harvest time we have a chance to increase or at least maintain, the yield potential of our corn silage.  Good forage management that includes proper packing, inoculant and sealing corn silage with bunker covers and tires is key to reducing corn silage shrink and keeping it’s quality.

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.
