2015 Harvest Plot Results

Posted in News

Country Visions Cooperative works in partnership with growers each year to develop variety trials of corn, corn silage, soybeans, and wheat. This allows us to collect meaningful local data to evaluate variety performance in our cooperative's area. This valuable data helps growers and agronomists select the best varieties for the next growing season.

We have put these harvest plots into books for convenient use by our patrons. Each book includes Country Visions Coop harvest plots, side by side yield checks, and grower trials of new agronomy products. If you would like to know more about our harvest plot results or would like to purchase seed for next year please contact an agronomist at the Country Visions Coop location nearest to you.

On behalf of the Country Visions Agronomy Team- thank you to all our growers who helped develop this information.

Propane Survey Winners Announced

Posted in News

Many of our customers may have seen different drivers
delivering propane during the past few months, since some of our propane
drivers also work in Country Visions Agronomy Departments to help out during
their busy season. Our team here at Country Visions Energy Department and our
technology provider K&K Management Solutions have been working hard on our
energy program in order to make deliveries in the most efficient manner. We use
a state of the art monitoring system that takes into consideration the weather,
how many people are in the household and what appliances that use propane to
calculate the LP usage. The Propane Department is currently in the process of
fine tuning the routes even further.
With a year under our belt (in some locations) we can now see where the
improvements need to be made to help service to customers, keep everyone’s
costs down and have our drivers remain stress free.

We had a tremendous response to the questionnaire we sent
out. The information will help improve the efficiencies of our service to you.
To show our appreciation for your reply a drawing for FREE propane was
held from the forms that were returned by the due date.

Congratulations to the winners of the FREE propane!

1st place - David and Barbara Zambon from De Pere, WI

2nd place - Morris and Anne Lange from Menominee, MI

3rd place - Marissa Dura from Peshtigo, WI

Remember, If you are set up as a “Will Call” customer and
call us when you need propane, please keep in mind our policy of 3-5 business
days to have the delivery entered into the scheduled delivery route. Have a
safe and warm heating season!

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.
