Thank you for a great year!

The 2020 crop year has just about come to a close. We have had a great fall giving us all time to harvest, apply fertilizer, soil test, till and many other tasks that sometimes get caught undone before winter sets in. Now, many of you have begun to turn your thoughts to 2021.  Seed should be at the top of your list. I hope many of you have a chance to book or take advantage of the early season prepay discounts, giving you the opportunity to lock in those top varieties from Croplan, Dekalb, Asgrow, Brevant or NK Seeds that we carry.  If you have not, please contact your agronomist today to work with you, using the R7 Technology, to match the right seed on the right acre to maximize your yield and ROI.

With the year-end fast approaching many of you will be working with your financial advisors to see how you best can take care of your balance sheet for 2020.  Premier Cooperative Agronomy is positioned to meet your entire 2021 crop production prepays needs. We’ve worked hard once again to secure chemicals, fertilizer, and seed products, and will provide top agronomic knowledge for the 2021-growing season.  As you settle in and begin to make your 2021 crop input decisions, give your agronomist a call to talk over your needs and see what savings we can offer you.  

Traditionally we have had “Prepay Days” in December at many agronomy locations.  With current COVID-19 guidance in place we will be approaching them different than in the past.  We will be foregoing the specific days and offer a window of time for you to get together with your agronomist or location managers.  To help this come together we are asking for your cooperation to accommodate the COVID-19 protocols that we have in place.  If you are interested in meeting to review your 2021 Crop Input needs and discuss your prepay options, please give a call to your agronomist or Agronomy location to make those arrangements.  We will work to accommodate a timeslot that best suits your request.  We appreciate your cooperation and look forward to safely meeting with you.

Thank you for your past patronage of Premier Agronomy and we look forward to helping you have a prosperous 2021!

To date fall weather has been rather mild, however, soon enough good ol mother nature will bless us with the season livestock producers dread…. WINTER. As the saying goes, if you like winter you never owned livestock. However, owning cattle, winter can be a time of excitement as you await the coming calving season and get things geared up to see the success of last years breeding decisions. More importantly during this time  though is being aware of the nutritional demands of the cows as you transition from a typical maintenance type diet to diets that meet the needs of a cow in the last 1/3 of gestation.

In recognition of the need faced in our communities, Premier wanted to find a way to give back this holiday season. With the uncertainty of the world today, the need to eat stays constant. Beginning mid-November, Premier branches began to collect non-perishables to donate to local food pantries. The food drive officially ended on Friday, December 4th with a total of 1,849 items to be donated to local food pantries.

We’ve almost reached the end of 2020. 2020 had a lot of challenges but Americans are resilient so most of us have found healthy ways to cope with our new realities. Here’s to hoping 2021 finds you healthy and prosperous. 

Speaking of prosperous, if you read Andy’s Manager’s Desk article, most divisions had a solid year in 2020. The energy division also did well again this year, which will allow us to continue to invest in new trucks and other equipment and services in order to increase safety and efficiency.

The easiest way for us to increase our efficiency is through routing our deliveries properly. That is why we ask our will call customers to call in when they are around 30%. It gives us a chance to work the will call orders into our scheduled delivery orders for the greatest efficiency. If you call in to order your propane, please work with us to avoid delays or additional charges. For your safety and ours, please don’t create an emergency so that our employees have to enter your home to start your propane appliance after you’ve let yourself run out of propane.
