Mar 27, 2020

Stay Home Order and United Farmers
Perseverance is the foundation of agriculture. As I write this article, Covid-19 continues to spread across the state leaving farmers and producers, small businesses and communities bracing for the pandemics impact on the U.S.  agriculture industry. While the many unknowns of the virus have us feeling anxious, United Farmers’ Cooperative remains committed to you, our patrons, and the contributions you make to feeding the world! We will preserver; we are in this together.
In order to keep our patrons and team members safe, and to comply with Governor Tim Waltz’s stay home order, we are modifying the way we conduct daily business. The precautionary measures we are taking will help prevent the spread of Covid-19. Please be aware of the following, temporary changes:
  1. Face to Face Meetings | We enjoy meeting with our patrons in person, and see the value of discussing plans as we prepare for planting season. Unfortunately, this comes with great risk. We are encouraging our staff and members to comply with the stay at home order. However, we are still open for business and prepared to server you. We ask that all business conversations take place on the phone or via other electronic forms of communications. For a complete list of contact information, visit our website:
  2. Facilities Restrictions | All locations are temporarily closed to the public, however, our staff is on hand and will continue to server your needs via phone orders and curbside pickup. A complete list of contact information is available at our website. I would also like to remind you of our online bill pay and secure, payment drop box options.
  3. Inventory Preparation | Our team is working diligently to maintain ample inventory levels for all of our products so that we are able to continue to support all facets of your operation, despite the many unknowns that are ahead.
  4. Limited Staff at Facilities | During this time and until further notice, we have limited our staff across our locations. Despite our limited staff, our preparation for the critical planting season has not changed. This precaution has been taken so that we can continue to meet the needs of your operation, while keep you and our team members safe and healthy.
If you have any concerns, questions or specific requests please reach out to us directly. Our team is available and ready to accommodate! 
Thanks for your understanding and patience during this unprecedent event. We look forward to resuming normal operations as soon as conditions allow.
Mitch Altermatt, CEO/General Manager

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.
