Continue to Rely On Us to Serve You

I wanted to give a brief update on our feed division year-end, but first, I wanted to thank all our Patrons that worked with United Cooperative in 2022 and beyond. We had total sales in the Feed Division of 307 million dollars. That said, we are paying back 50% in cash instead of the typical 40%, which is over 31.1 million dollars, to all our patrons. The average feed price in 2022 was $615/ton X 8.25%/ton is $50.74/ton. I would challenge any of our competitors in the marketplace that would come close to the patronage program and competitive pricing that we offer at United Cooperative.
We continue to make capital expenditures in our Feed Division, including a Mill project in Waupun and investing in rolling stock for all our locations. We continue to invest in our people and try to attract the best possible talent to add to our growing staff, including Dairy Lactation Specialists, Calf and Heifer Specialists, and Forage Specialists (inoculant and Plastic). We have someone that can help serve your needs as we want you to “Rely on Us.” We continue to monitor and evaluate all the ingredients in our facilities as part of our Quality Control program. We do this to offer the most accurate rations for the livestock and our customers.
We at United Cooperative are ready to help serve you and your business as best as possible in any way. If there are any opportunities that you would like to explore with United Cooperative, please do not hesitate to reach out to any of our locations or Feed Sales Specialists to see how we can help serve you.

Costs of feed inputs are easy to scrutinize, but often the rest of the costs incurred when feeding animals are not considered when determining what feed to buy or where to buy it.
There’s a lot to consider when choosing your corn hybrids each year. Usually, relationships and personal history play more into the decision than many of us would like to admit. But if you’re looking to break free of your obligatory purchases from your farmer-dealer poker buddy, start by asking these questions.
The drought of summer has now opened the door to the beginning of harvest. As I write this article we have started taking in soybeans and even some corn into our grain facilities. It is always a joyous occasion to begin the harvest season and to realize the yield potential of all the hard work that has got us to this point. The preparation of spring, the growth of summer and the bounty of harvest certainly brings a sense of pride and purpose. Collectively coming together during this season makes the journey more rewarding and fulfilling.
