January 2024

Happy New Year to each of you from the staff at Premier Cooperative. I hope everyone was able to take a break over the holidays and spend time with family and friends.

On January 24th we will be holding our 131st annual meeting of the members of Premier Cooperative. Reports from our CFO Andy Jones, board chairman Steve Burns, myself, as well as director election results and scholarship recipients will be part of the meeting.

As we report on the financial performance of our past year, it is important to remember that is what has already happened, and that our focus must shift to the new investments in facilities and people that will continue to position our cooperative for growth and future success.Each year there are plenty sprayers, and other equipment that need to be updated or replaced as they have worn out serving our customers. However, investments in new facilities, expanded manufacturing capabilities, and employee development will be what helps set Premier Cooperative apart from our competition. 2024 will be an exciting year for investments across nearly all divisions for Premier. I look forward to sharing the progress as the year goes on.

Thank you for helping to make 2023 a successful year at your cooperative. We rely on your continued support to allow us to invest in the staff and fixed assets needed to help meet your needs while providing a safe and rewarding environment for the employee team. It remains our goal to be the Premier company for our customers and employees.

We began distributing this year’s patronage and equity redemption checks with our May open house events in Mt Horeb, LaFarge, and Westby. With a little help from Mother Nature, we were lucky to have beautiful weather and an even better turnout for each open house. If you were not able to stop in to pick up your check this year, you should see it arrive in your mailbox by mid-June. Checks began getting mailed the last week of May and could take a couple of weeks to complete.
