United Farmers Cooperative


Big Changes Ahead on August 31

Your cooperative is just days away from becoming United Farmers Cooperative on September 1. There are some transitions that you need to know, including the 24-hour period when our accounting system will be closed down:

  • The August 31 year-end is just days away. This will mark the close of the fiscal year for United Farmers Mercantile Cooperative (UFMC). It will be a partial 8-month year-end for Farmers Cooperative Company (FCC). Going forward, the year-end for United Farmers Cooperative will be August 31.
  • We’re working on year-end inventories. The accounting systems of Farmers Cooperative Company and United Farmers Mercantile Cooperative will be closed down at end of the business day, August 31, for a minimum of 24 hours to transfer all the data. We’ll continue to serve you with products, but no accounting options or grain checks will be available during this time. Any contract balances (grain, feed, energy, agronomy products, etc.), including pre-pay balances placed prior to August 31, will transfer to United Farmers Cooperative.
  • The board of directors for United Farmers Cooperative met July 26. The executive committee includes Larry Weis, president; Kent Swanson, vice president; Mike Carlson, secretary.

We’re also busy preparing for harvest. We’re making space for grain at our locations and look forward to serving you this fall.

Thanks for your support of United Farmers Cooperative. We’re committed to your success.
