The Farmers Cooperative Elevator Annual Meeting will be held Wednesday, December 2, at the Rushford-Peterson High School, 102 N Mill Street, Rushford. Dinner will be served at 6:00pm followed by the membership meeting and children's activities.

Members have a direct voice in the way Farmers Cooperative Elevator Company operates. Each year we hold an annual membership meeting — a forum for members to ask questions, learn about their co-op’s performance and take part in the business proceedings, including director elections.  

Two director positions are up for election this year. If you are interested in becoming an FCE director, please contact General Manager Gordy Elliott. Both Steve Oian and Rick Ruberg have agreed to serve if re-elected.

Members and their families are invited. We’ll have supervised children’s activities, so those with young children can also enjoy the meeting.

2015 corn and soybean yield results are being posted as they are received from our agronomists, so check back periodically for more results.

  Yields — As soybean harvest winds down, yields are ranging from 48 to 78 bu/acre. Corn harvest is just getting started, and yields have been ranging from 195 to 252 bu/acre. Two positives that may help offset low prices are dry grain and heavy test weights.

Challenges we are seeing are stalks deteriorating faster than we like. It’s time to get the crop in the bin, or bad weather could add moisture and knock it down. No one likes to pick down corn!

Test Soil & Consider Fall Fertilization — High yields are taking more fertility out of the soil. Fall is an excellent time for soil testing, whether it’s grid sampling or standard. Testing now will tell you where you need fall fertilization, and it gives us more time to plan what will be needed in the spring.

Save Nutrients in Your Silage 
Save more of the nutrients in your silage by using a silage inoculant or acid based stabilizer to maximize digestible tonnage with products like Biomax 5 or the SiloSolve product line. Remember to use additives properly, pack well, and cover securely to minimize storage losses. The end result: higher production and a better return on your investment.

  We’re prepared to help with your grain needs
FCE has made significant facility investments in the past few years, adding storage bins and new technologies that speed up receiving.
Whether you market your grain through us or simply need storage, our facilities are here to serve you.
