In a vote counted at the end of July, our friends at Farmers Cooperative Company at Dows chose to unify with NEW Cooperative. Those members overwhelmingly voted in favor of this uni ﬁ cation, based on the recommendation of their board of directors. Members and customers of Dows and Rowan will now be represented by two seats on the By Brent Bunte NEW Cooperative Board of Directors. NEW Cooperative is excited for the opportunity to serve our new members and ﬁ nd ways to add value to your farming operations. We are ready to become a part of your communities and build long lasting relationships that you can trust. We are also pleased to announce the purchase of the Herbers Seed location in Coon Rapids. Please read our Agronomy Manager, Dan Dix’s article for more details of this acquisition. Harvest time is quickly approaching for the NEW Cooperative territory. Our employees are working diligently to prepare our equipment and facilities for maximum ef ﬁ ciency during these next busy weeks. To our Lanyon area members and customers-the new grain facilities will be open and ready to take grain this fall. We wish you all a safe harvest season and look forward to serving you again this fall. IN THE FIELD WELCOME DOWS, ROWAN, AND COON RAPIDS!
