Bulk Oil Customers

Posted in News

Bulk Oil customers, if your supply is or will be getting low soon, please get your orders placed.  We expect that the weight limit signs will be going up soon and the laws are getting tighter for heavy equipment to travel on roadways.  We now need written permission from the County Highway Commissioner to get onto some of the town roads and County Trunks.  If it becomes an issue, our Bulk Petroleum Department will do whatever possible to help you get your products.  Contact Pete Brandt at 920.418.3224 or Jeff Braun at 920.374.0274 if this becomes a concern for you.

Agri-Partners and Country Visions Cooperatives Join Forces

Posted in News

September 1, 2013 will be the first day of business for the newly merged Country Visions and Agri-Partners Cooperatives. The venture will combine Country Visions sales of $114 million with Agri-Partners sales at $95 million.

In an effort to save patron investment and offer continuity, the newly organized board of directors voted to retain the Country Visions Cooperative name. The cooperative will be governed by six members from the Agri-Partners Board and six members from the Country Visions Board. Districts will be established at a later date to ensure representation throughout the trade territory.

Equity in the new cooperative will go in on a dollar for dollar basis. Patron members who have a dollar of equity in either Agri-Partners or Country Visions will have a dollar of equity in the new company. Patrons from both cooperatives will have their back equity paid to the year 1999, and remain equal moving forward.

What is a Co-op?

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) defines a cooperative as a user-owned, user-controlled business that distributes benefits on the basis of use. Member users, or patrons, own and democratically elect the board of directors, which provides oversight of the co-op. Net earnings are distributed on the basis of proportional use, or patronage, rather than on investment.

Cooperative associations have been organized throughout history to carry out many different activities, often in response to economic and social stress. Cooperative organizations in the United States first appeared in the late 1700's and today co-ops can be found in all sectors of the U.S. economy. Consumer, purchasing and farm supply cooperatives are all organized to provide the specialized goods or services that their member patrons want to buy.

By combining member demand, a co-op can provide better availability, selection, pricing, or delivery of products or services to individual consumers, businesses or farmers. Farm supply co-ops cost-effectively supply input, fuel and agronomy services to farm business owners.
