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

4-16-19

Bulls are still struggling to get any news to get any type of rally going. Hard red winter wheat has been seeing good export business with the down turn in the market. Corn is struggling to compete with South America in export business with cheap price and cheaper currency. Beans also facing the same South America problem but are also suffering from drop in demand. Markets have not seen much reaction from the latest round of news about a China trade deal getting done in May or June. Corn planting is off to a slow start but not slow enough to cause any alarm at this point.  As a producer if Dec corn futures get back through the $4.00 thresh hold it will be a good time to get some new crop YC contracted.
