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.

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.

Navigating the Fast and Furious Growing Season of 2022

Dec 16, 2022

As I reflect on 2022, I can't help but think about the challenges we faced and how we overcame them to have another tremendous year in Agronomy. February brought us the Russia/Ukraine war, which sent fertilizer and energy costs to all-time highs.

Grain Update

Dec 13, 2022

United Cooperative has already handled a record amount of corn and soybeans this harvest, and there is a small amount yet to be harvested. We currently have several million bushels of corn on the ground, and with the bean harvest coming in so fast, we also put soybeans outside for the first time as we waited for freight. Wisconsin has been fortunate to produce excellent yields and quality in the past

2022: A Year in Review

Dec 12, 2022

As we close out 2022, I want to reflect on the tremendous momentum we have experienced this year. Our employees and facilities functioned at a very high level, creating growth, timely service, and demand creation. I want to thank the employees for their commitment and dedication and our member/owners for your loyalty and trust.

The Best Feed Cost Solution For Your Farming Operation

Dec 07, 2022

In today’s economic environment, everyone looks for ways to drive out the cost of doing business. The price of all our inputs, whether feed-, agronomy- or energy-related, all add up to big dollars at the end of the year. As inflation has hit all our businesses, these dollars seem to become bigger and bigger, and the importance of managing these dollars becomes more real daily.

Reflecting on 2022

Dec 05, 2022

At this time of year, everyone gets busy with Holiday plans and end-of-year activities. This can add extra stress to an already stressful year. While it is always easier said than done, we should all step back and try and focus on the many good things that happened in 2022. 

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.
