In honor of National FFA week February 17th-24th, we have awarded several grants to local FFA chapters in partnership with Land O'Lakes and CoBank. We are proud to support these chapters and the young men and women that have an interest in agriculture. It is a small way that we can give back to the communities that support Midwest Farmers Cooperative and a way to support the future of agriculture. Look for some updates each day next week here on our website as well as on Facebook and Twitter.
                                   

The Palmyra FFA Chapter conducts distance learning with the Elmwood-Murdock FFA Chapter to provide them with agricultural classes. The Palmyra FFA chapter received $2,000 to help fund two grow towers to be put in at Elmwood-Murdock school to provide gardening experience to students year round. The grow towers are aeroponic systems based on the NASA technology using nutrient base solutions pumped through the system and cascading over the plant roots that are grown in soil less media. Chapter members below pictured with Jeremy Wilhelm, CEO Midwest Farmers Cooperative and Lonnie Rorie, Elmwood MFC location manager.


The Syracuse FFA Chapter received $1,500 through the Midwest Farmers Cooperative grant to purchase three chromebooks for the ag classroom to be used for online curriculum and AET record keeping, which is used for FFA members to keep track of their Supervised Agricultural Experiences. They currently do not have any computers in the ag room making it difficult to utilize the internet and AET system. 

The Auburn FFA Chapter received $2,000 through the Midwest Farmers Cooperative grant to be used towards "Putting the Science into Animal Science." This grant will help the chapter hatch eggs and track the embryo development process. They also plan to conduct feed trials and track chick growth rate. They also are going to buy a kit to learn poultry anatomy, breeds, meat cuts and evaluate egg quality. Chapter members below pictured with Jeremy Wilhelm, CEO Midwest Farmers Cooperative and Jay Fischer, Auburn MFC location manager.


The Conestoga FFA Chapter received a $1,000 grant through Midwest Farmers Cooperative to be used to help fund a tower garden growing system.  The hydroponic system would be able to further educate the students. The system utilizes new vertical farming technology to minimize resource use and maximize yield. This grant helps the chapter take a step in updating their resources and giving them new opportunities. Chapter members below pictured with Jeremy Wilhelm, CEO Midwest Farmers Cooperative


Lincoln Public Schools, The Career Academy received $1,100 to support Seeing Is Believing through the Midwest Farmers Cooperative Grant. This project was implemented to give students an understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the animals they are studying. This grant will help purchase models for the classroom and for units of instruction in digestion, reproduction, structure and muscle development. Members below pictured with Jeremy Wilhelm, CEO Midwest Farmers Cooperative


The Ashland-Greenwood FFA chapter received a $1,500 Midwest Farmers Cooperative grant to help them purchase grow towers. A grow tower is an advanced form of hydroponics. This project helps students receive a hands on experience with crops plus learn how to manage their time, develop a work ethic and improve their communication skills. 

The Waverly FFA Chapter received a $1,500 Midwest Farmers Cooperative grant to be used to support Washington Leadership Conference. Waverly FFA members have the opportunity to travel to Washington D.C. to participate in FFA Washington Leadership Conference and curruntly five students are planning to attend. If more than two members chose to attend, the chapter advisor will attend, but must pay the cost for herself. This grant will pay for Mrs. Spath to attend Washington Leadership Conference with her students. 


On January 23rd, Midwest Farmers Cooperative held its 96th annual meeting at the Cass County Fairgrounds. The business meeting included a review of the 2017 financial report by the auditors, Gardiner-Thomsen, as well as an update from the Nebraska Cooperative Council. The election results for the board of directors were also announced. Neil Stedman, Duane Bremer, David Stubbendick and David Wendt were re-elected to the Board of Directors of Midwest Farmers Cooperative.


Dear Shareholders,
We take seriously the trust you place in us to serve on the board of directors of your cooperative.  We are also honored to be stewards of your cooperative.  Just as the farming economy has changed in the past 5-7 years, your cooperative has had to change as well.  The increased grain capacity and rail access we have invested in recently will ensure we have a strong future.  However, we also have to make tough decisions that are in the best interest of your cooperative, just like farmers are having to make some tough decisions.  These are not decisions we take lightly.  Nor do we think they will all be popular decisions.  But we agree that they are necessary to continue to provide you with competitive prices, superior service and sound advice.  In the spirit of transparency, the following changes will become effective in the first quarter of 2018:

1) We will be closing our Greenwood Service Station for repair and service work on January 31st.  We will continue to sell gas and diesel at our pumps with the cardtrol system and the car wash will remain open.  Over the years, the service business has fallen to a level that it makes financial sense to close and reduce some costs.  Utilization of services by our members has been low in recent years.  We will work with the local members to find alternative solutions when their needs arise. 
2) 
We will make our Eagle location seasonal effective January 31st.  The location will be staffed for grain harvest and chemical application, but will not have personnel at the site in the off-season.   Last year, we did less than $5,000 of business in the off-season in Eagle.  We will be able to utilize the staff at Eagle in the off-season in a much more efficient manner.
3)
We will also make our Cook location seasonal effective January 31st.  The location will be staffed for grain harvest and chemical/fertilizer application, but will not have a full time staff at the site in the off-season.  With the newer facilities in Tecumseh and Syracuse, we have seen grain and agronomy numbers fall over the past few years in Cook.  We do have a bagged feed presence in Cook and we will be working with those customers on alternative places to pick up the feed in Tecumseh or Syracuse.


This is the best direction for your cooperative as we believe we are at a critical time to be the architects of the future.  We need to have the courage to do what needs to be done, not simply what we like to do.  We ask for your cooperation as we transition the above assets and we will work to make the transition as smooth as possible.

We are pleased to announce that Midwest Farmers Cooperative and the Land O'Lakes Foundation made a contribution of $4,000 to the Food Bank of Lincoln to support several of their Rural Southeast Nebraska BackPack programs. This donation will provide more than 500 backpacks of food this school year. See the picture here.
