Here to Stay
Nov 02, 2020
Recently, I’ve been made aware of concerns that are circulating amongst our customers and within the communities we serve. I would like to take this as an opportunity to assure you the Ag Service Center in Lafayette will continue to serve you and your operation for years to come. Our doors will remain open, and we will continue to be your partner for all of your shortline equipment, rental equipment, parts and service needs. Our full service shop is staffed with factory trained and certified technicians who can conduct routine and preventative maintenance as well as repairs in the shop or at your farm. In addition, if you are looking to sell your equipment, one piece or an entire line, we can help with that! We will work with you to consign your equipment on our lot, or leverage Auctiontime online auction to help maximize your profit.
Strategically, UFC has taken proactive measures to ensure we remain a profitable, competitive and sustainable business partner for our member-owners now and for future generations to come. Because of the recent changes that were made and the restructuring of our company, UFC is now better focused on our core areas of expertise - equipment, agronomy, energy, grain and feed. Financially, we have less overhead expense; those dollars are being reinvested into the core divisions of our business so that we are able to better serve our member-owners. UFC is financially stronger than it has ever been before. You will have the opportunity to learn more about the strong financial health of the business when our year end audit is released later this month.
We appreciate your patronage and look forward to serving you in the years ahead! Please keep in mind these additional products and services we offer in Lafayette:
We offer small engine repairs, farm equipment repairs, skid loader repairs, auto and commercial truck repairs, DOT truck inspections and tire service with Firestone and most brands of tires. Not only do we have a tire service truck to help on site, we also have a mobile service truck to help with your equipment repairs on the farm as well. Our fully stocked parts department offers: oils-lubricants, belts, bearings, tillage wear parts for most brands, SI feeders, Richie waterers, gates and fencing supplies, power washers (hot and cold water) and more.
Our rental equipment includes: skidloaders, mini excavators and attachments, grain carts, tillage equipment, land rollers, echo pruners, power washers and more.

With our extended weather forecast showing below normal temperatures across much of UFC’s territory we know growers may not be waiting for “ideal” planting conditions. We suggest utilizing 6-24-6 starter fertilizer to help corn and soybeans deal with cooler planting temperatures.
