Ordinary people who have watched their lives flash before their eyes, stared certain death in the face and overcame it. What key decisions did they make to save their lives?

CATTLEMEN aren’t responsible for the weather — just everything else needed to provide the high quality, mouth-watering, grain-fed beef we enjoy all year long. WE THANK YOU!
Like cattlemen, Purina Wind & Rain® minerals and tubs work hard until the job is done. Contact FCE's beef specialists Paul Bartsh, 507-259-1220, or Mike Root, 507-957-3674, to learn more.
Call Paul or Mike if you'd like to LOCK IN YOUR CREEP FEED FOR THE SEASON. Beef producers should use the RangeLand® creep pasture pellets until July or August and then switch to Accuration® Range Supplement to limit the intakes when the beef calves are older. If the pastures get low at the end of the season, and if they consume too much of the pellets they are more inclined to bloat.
IMPROVED AGRONOMY FACILITY
The updated agronomy facility in Rushford is serving farmers' needs, even as construction is being completed on the building. The new receiving and blending system is operating, increasing capacity and speeding up receiving, blending, and shipping at this facility. Features of the Rushford agronomy facility upgrade include:
• Two 30-ton overhead load out bins replace the old tower • A ten-ton vertical blender for backup blending and specialty blends • A new declining weight blender will run up to four tons per minute; the old tower could only accommodate one ton per minute • The receiving system speed has increased from 40 tons per hour to 120 tons per hour • An automated blender system will improve speed and accuracy. The main control box and system operator’s station are next to the agronomy office and can be operated by one person.
Farmers Co-op's management and board gives special thanks to the FCE agronomy team for all the extra work they did to help with this project. Contractors involved in the remodel are: Meyerhofer Steel & Construction - metal work, Norman’s Electric Service - electrical and automation, Rick Olson Construction - building, R&R Construction - cement work, Modern Concrete - concrete work, and Layco by Yargus - blending system.
FCE is also addressing major changes to the FCE Spring Grove agronomy facility.
