June 2023 Update

We began distributing this year’s patronage and equity redemption checks the first week of June during our open house events in Mt Horeb, LaFarge, and Westby. In addition to celebrating our successful fiscal year of 2022 by returning a record amount of cash back to our members, the open houses lined up nicely with June Dairy month and helped to proudly support our dairy members by serving plenty of milk, cheese curds, and ice cream. If you are not able to stop in to pick up your check this year, we will be mailing all checks throughout the month of June. 

In addition to returning a record amount of cash back to our members, posting successful financial results year over year has also allowed Premier to continue to reinvest in our people and facilities, support many agricultural and youth organizations throughout the communities we serve, as well as award thousands of dollars in college scholarships each year. These are just a few examples of what your cooperative does with the profits it generates to benefit its members, all while continuing to grow and add new members every day. It’s a great story to tell. 

During the month of June, we will also complete sending out most of our propane contracts and safety mailings for the coming heating season. With the never-ending volatility surrounding the global energy markets, and contract prices down from last year, be sure to choose from one of the many contracting options we offer to lock in your supply and prices for the upcoming year. As Tim writes about each year, the peace of mind you’ll have knowing you won’t have unexpected price spikes next winter is well worth the few minutes it will take to complete and return a contract. If you do not purchase propane from us, or do not receive a contract by the end of June, please give our nearest energy office a call and our staff will take care of you. If you receive a packet in the mail, please be sure to open the safety information and share it with your entire family. Thank you for supporting our energy team and for helping your cooperative become one of the leading propane suppliers in the United States.   

Have a wonderful Father’s Day and June Dairy Month. I hope you have a great month that includes consuming as much dairy, meat, eggs and local vegetables as you can to support our hardworking farmers.
