THANK YOU MEMBER OWNERS for participating in your cooperative's annual business meeting on December 3. Over 160 people attended including members, their families, representatives from supporting businesses, and co-op employees. The 74 member owners who attended re-elected Director Eric Nelson and elected Scott Bulman to replace Director Greg Smith who did not run for re-election. During reports from the co-op's auditor, President Steve Oian, General Manager Gordy Elliott and the division managers, those present learned the co-op had a good year. Although sales numbers were impacted by sinking grain prices, volumes were good and net margins were slightly greater than last year. Members were also told about plans for a new feed mill and agronomy facility updates. SEE MORE ANNUAL MEETING PICTURES ON FACEBOOK https://www.facebook.com/townandcountrystore

DON'T GIVE AWAY YOUR CORN With markets continuing to trend down, we encourage you to lock in your minimum price. Lock in what you need and protect the upside with an option. Don’t give away your corn. If you have to sell your corn, spend a little money on an option, leaving room for the upside potential. If you’re storing your corn at home, don’t let it devalue, we can lock in the futures for next summer and buy an option. You can’t lose more than you invest in the option, leaving the upside potential. Please call Greg Boldt, 507-864-7733, if you have questions. We're here to help you understand your options.
STORAGE SPACE AVAILABLE FCE has grain services for all your needs — storage, competitive drying rates and marketing programs. A new bin at Spring Grove has sped up receiving there. The new bins at Rushford South Fork continue to take pressure off our feed and grain facility in downtown Rushford. We still have some space available, so give us a call at 507-864-7733 to learn more about your contract and storage options.
