As you are in the midst of another new planting season, it comes to mind that now, more than ever, it is important for NEW Cooperative to set the bar high and strive to meet and exceed the expectations of you, the NEW Cooperative member. Our employee team is out in full force helping to By Brent Bunte provide you with the highest quality agronomic inputs, and the knowledgeable support you need to get this crop season off to the best possible start. It takes a lot of people a whole lot of effort to coordinate the movement of your products and services so that we are ready to roll when you are. Our goal is to keep you running to your full potential and have your products where you need them, when you need them. A big part of that goal is achieved through the continual re-investment into NEW Cooperative’s rolling stock. We have built an arsenal for you to rely upon and will continue to make sure that we provide only the best equipment to enhance your growing operations. We will do all we can to ensure you have access to the best equipment for your operation’s speci fi c needs. I know I’ve stressed this time and time again, but the key to a successful business relationship with our members is our outstanding, dedicated employee team. We are committed to getting the best people in the right places in this cooperative. Being able to rely upon and trust the knowledge of your local people should be a given. By ensuring that we do, in fact, have the best people working for you, everybody wins. As you all know, we take pride in the facilities that comprise this cooperative. We believe in reinvesting money into capital expenditure projects that will increase our value to your operations. This could mean tearing down an existing unsafe structure, adding more grain storage to a location, or building new agronomy facilities to be able to keep up with your demand, etc. We are listening to your needs and are always on the lookout for ways to position ourselves for your future needs. In the last two years that the Lanyon facility has been in operation, we have seen signi fi cant growth in our membership as well as an increase in agronomy business done through that location. As a result, we are pleased to announce construction of a new grain facility in Lanyon. This project marks the fi rst time that NEW Cooperative has constructed a new grain facility at a green fi eld site. We have committed approximately $6 million to complete this project. Please see our Grain Manager, Mark Walter’s article for more details on this new venture. IN THE FIELD
