New Agronomy Site - Plymouth, WI

Posted in News

The scrapers are finally moving dirt on the site.  The agronomy plant is being built as a joint venture between Country Visions Cooperative and Kettle Lakes Cooperative, but that venture may change pending an approval of a merger between the two cooperatives.  Ballots will be mailed to the voting membership of Kettle Lakes in early June.  Current merger procedures do not require a vote from Country Visions members. Kettle Lakes members must have their executed ballots returned by June 30th.

The new plant is located along County Road PP in Plymouth.  The weather has delayed the start just as it has delayed our planting season.  Hopefully the sunshine will stay around and we can make up some lost days! Visit the Country Visions Facebook page to see pictures and videos of the progress.

2017 Youth Proficiency Award Program

Posted in News

CP Feeds, LLC and Country Visions Cooperative have joined together to offer the Youth Proficiency Award Program as a way to recognize the time and effort 4-H and FFA members put into raising their show animals.  This program hopes to encourage students to be involved in agriculture now and stay involved into their adult lives.  These exhibitors enjoy many benefits of taking part in their local, state and national shows. They learn irreplaceable life lessons, make memories and friendships that will last a lifetime and of course, earn those coveted blue and purple ribbons.

This program is open to active 4-H and FFA members who buy feed from Country Visions Cooperative or CP Feeds.  Project animals include dairy, beef, swine, sheep, equine, goats, poultry and small animals.

The Youth Proficiency Award Program helps to alleviate the financial burden of exhibiting an animal.  Award winners have exhibited at any level, from county fairs to national shows, and have received a variety of honors from class winners to supreme champions. In addition, CP Feeds and Country Visions Cooperative will donate gift items to each participant no matter how they place in their respective shows.

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.
