It's that time of the year.

Are you looking for a reliable way to improve yield potential in your alfalfa, corn and soybeans? The Premier Cooperative Agronomy Team is available to evaluate how your fertility, seed selection, insect and herbicide plans will perform in the current weather conditions. Now is the time to take advantage of a valuable tool you have at your fingertips to help you maximize your yield potential for 2022. This would be having discussions with your trusted Agronomy Advisor about your weed-control strategy based on our current weather conditions. As you know, controlling weeds early is extremely important to protect your bottom line.  Large weeds result in limited options and higher costs for you. Contact your Premier Cooperative Agronomist for an early start on successful weed control to help you maximize your 2022 crop yields.    

Please remember with the “rush” upon us, to keep SAFETY on the top of your to do list.  With this spring’s workload getting squeezed into a collapsed time frame we all will be driven to do more in the few hours that mother nature gives us. Getting rest, planning, communicating, listening, taking breaks and keeping stress at bay are a few critical factors that can lead to a safe and successful planting season.  

Also on the to do list is to work closely with your Premier Agronomy location and communicate your product needs and delivery needs in a timely manner.  Planning ahead will sure be a big help as we coordinate our daily schedules to meet the needs of our valued customers.  As we also head into the spraying season, please take the time to get your field maps into your agronomy location. Having the maps at locations is a requirement to improve our application services as well as maximizing our efficiency. Thank you very much in advance for the cooperation.

Every day is a great day to be in the beef business and this year has proved to be another excellent year in the cow/calf   and feedlot sectors of beef production.

I hope you all had a fantastic August. Although we had a few days of hot weather toward the end of the month, cooler days are coming. It’s less than 120 days until winter. Soon we’ll be digging out the warm clothing and finding our boots to prepare for the colder weather that is surely on its way. If you haven’t locked in your propane supply but would still like to, please call your local Premier Energy office to see if the lock in price has changed.

I hope everyone had the chance to enjoy the Independence Day holiday with family and friends. Thanks to all of you who called in your orders early so our staff could adjust to the mid-week holiday and help minimize the added pressure that the short work week brings. I’d also like to thank all of you who returned your propane contracts by the end of June. With a short window of when contracts are mailed to when they are due back, we really appreciate your patience and support. If reading this reminded you that your contract is still sitting on the kitchen table, just pick up the phone and call the energy office nearest to you. I’m sure we’ll be able to take care of you. The last of the propane contracts (Cap renewals) and safety mailings will be sent out later this month. On behalf of our energy team and everyone at your cooperative, thank you for choosing us to serve your propane needs again this year.
