Kansas Cooperatives

A bit of information about Kansas Cooperatives. 

 

Farmer cooperatives contribute value in many ways to their members and to their communities. Yet, the economic contribution of the Kansas grain marketing and farm supply cooperative sector to the overall Kansas economy is unknown. In this ACCC Fact Sheet, Amanda Clymer, Dr. Brian Briggeman, and Dr. John Leatherman discuss and show the total economic contribution of grain and farm supply cooperatives for the Kansas economy. The data collected for the study shows some significant direct impacts of cooperatives to its members and the state of Kansas. In 2017, Kansas farmer cooperatives:

 

  • Paid $71 million in cash patronage
  • Paid $22 million in property taxes
  • Provided over 4,600 jobs
  • Paid over $300 million in employee wages, salaries, and benefits

The View From The GM's Desk

There is life in wheat today!!! News of weather concern in the EU behind the rally. EU and Black Sea stocks are very thigh. Any miss on a crop there could make the world wheat situation very interesting. Need more of this type of news to keep the market from falling back into the down trend. 

Questions?? Give me a call or come by and visit! And as always, Thanks for your Business!  Morgan

Kelley's Comments

We are getting closer to spring every minute.  Don't get caught with an empty tank and a busy fuel truck.  Prices continue to climb so if you are waiting for a dip in the price, you have probably missed your window.  Remember, the best time to plant a tree was 10 years ago. 

CFA FInancing is the easiest loan document you will ever fill out.  It can be used for seed, chemicals, fuel and fertilizer. Stop by and I will help you get the financing you need.  

Questions?? Give me a call 620-453-1596....Thanks again!!  Kelley
