Persevering Through Spring Challenges

Apr 09, 2022

As each year passes, it gets harder to find people who are willing and able to work the demands of retail agriculture. Currently, the competition for qualified employees is extremely tough due to the large amount of available job opportunities and the high number of actively looking workers. But the challenge doesn’t stop there. Once we’ve hired a qualified employee, only half the battle has been won. The other half of the battle is being able to retain existing employees. Every sector of the workforce is facing this challenge, not just retail agriculture.

A Season of Opportunities

Apr 09, 2022

Spring is just around the corner. A season that brings new life, renewal, growth, and prosperity. For me personally, spring is the perfect reminder that no matter how challenging life may seem a new season of rebirth and regeneration is ahead. Professionally speaking there is no better metaphor to describe the season in which your cooperative is in. We are halfway through fiscal year 2022, and there has been no shortage of headwinds. From supply chain disruptions, price increases, labor shortages and geopolitical influences, all divisions of UFC have experienced challenges most of us never expected in our lifetime.

Evaluating UFC's Grain Elevator Assets

Apr 09, 2022

One of the bigger challenges a grain elevator faces is keeping the elevator’s receiving speed and capacity aligned with the speed at which growers harvest their crops. This challenge is even greater if there are only one or two elevators in the company’s portfolio. Fortunately, UFC has eight locations to deliver grain at.

Apr 09, 2022

I want to wish all the UFC patrons a safe and productive spring season for the many of tasks that are instore!
