COVID-19 UPDATE 3-19-2020

Mar 19, 2020


At Premier Cooperative the safety and wellbeing of our staff, customers, and communities is our top priority. With COVID-19 (coronavirus) having reached a pandemic situation, we need your help in keeping you, your families, our employee team and their families, and all our members, safe and healthy. Please keep in mind this is an ever-changing situation and we will be adapting as warranted.
  • We have implemented measures to help keep our staff and members safe, including restricting access to some locations/areas, changing hours, barriers for social distancing, and instructional signage.
  • Starting March 19, we will be restricting access to employees only at some locations. Please call the location before stopping. Contact information is available at premiercooperative.com and will be posted at locations.
  • Please limit your stops at our accessible facilities. If picking up feed or agronomy products, call ahead and we will have it ready for you when you arrive. When you arrive, call from your vehicle and we’ll bring it out to you.
  • Please limit interaction with delivery drivers and keep appropriate social distancing from all staff.
  • Please use technology—phone, email, text—to place orders and communicate with staff versus face to face when possible.
  • We may see some interruptions from suppliers. Our staff will help with substitutions if needed.
  • Our team is committed to providing the greatest products and service we can. With inevitable staffing challenges ahead, it’s critical that we receive feed orders at least 48 hours (2 working days) in advance to help our team meet your needs.
Thank you all for your understanding and support as we work through these difficult times together.
              Your Premier Cooperative Employee Team

In today’s world of lower commodity prices and tighter ROI for profits, growers are sharpening their strategies for crop inputs. Herbicides are an area that continues to receive scrutiny. So why should residual herbicides remain at current rates or even be increased in the future?

If you are among the 11 members of my audience (including my mom) who read my newsletter last month, you’ll recall that I was being a little braggy about getting caught in a snowstorm in the St. Paul area. Then we got hit with a snowstorm here a few days later. I guess I’m not as special as my mom thinks I am.

Despite the possibility of a few more nights of sub-freezing temperatures in the last week of April, our agronomy locations are not slowing down as they enter their busiest season. Our agronomy division and producer members are working hard to plant this year’s crop, with long days and short nights being the norm. It’s important to be extra cautious during the next couple of months. Farm machinery will be frequently entering and exiting fields and wide loads will be encountered on the road. Whether you’re driving to work or moving to the next field in your tractor, always be aware of your surroundings and never assume that others can see you. Take it slow and be safe.
