Premier Cooperative participates in Wisconsin’s Agricultural Security program. If we fail to pay you for grain when payment is due, you may file a claim under this program. The program may provide some compensation. However, our “estimated default exposure” exceeds program coverage, and we have not filed security to cover the difference, so compensation may cover only a portion of your loss. For more information, you may contact the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection, 2811 Agriculture Drive, Madison, 53708-8911 (phone 608/224-4998).
The above stated notice to producers is a result of limited funds available under the DATCP Agricultural Producer Security Fund. It is unrelated to the financial strength of Premier Cooperative.
