We carry NK Corn and Soybeans and Mycogen Corn and Beans , plus a wide variety of grasses ...seed oats and winter rye.

each one of the corn pro boxes is 50 small bags. And each soybean box is 40  small bags

I guess it's that time of year. We don't plant up here until mid May most years.

Yes we are a dealer and also a a 4 county hub for smaller farmer dealers ...NK will direct ship to us we unload and then have that dealer come to us to pick up etc. It can be a real mess from the last week of April to Mothers day.

Rob, are the dino bulk bags used anymore, or have the pro boxes taken over?

 

Do you use tenders or have them available for your customers? I have a high school classmate that farms and he got a new Meridian last year. It sure is sweet.

We are down to about 10-15 bulk bags  the rest of our larger customers prefer the pro boxes. Pro boxes are so nice and simple, everybodys choice by far. 

 

We have 1 tender to loan otherwise they all have there own.  I like the Meridans , real easy to load .  The tenders I do not like are the 6-8 box tenders that hold the boxes .  you get about 2" on each side of the box to load with the fork lift.  , plus they seem top heavy, compared to the Meridan. I will post more pics when we start to get busy.  of all of our equipment and stuff

I know your itching for spring as much as we are.  Although, anhydrous season is always two to three weeks of mass chaos before we get to the fun part.  We have been getting the last of our stuff in too.  Been a few guys even coming up and picking up their seed-corn.  They much be 'itching to go' too.

it always seems that everything happens at once you need guys in the warehouse running forklifts ...guys delivering...and more guys tendering the guys either spreading or putting on anhydrous ammonia. You guys have as much fun finding help as we do? How long have you been at the co op? thnx Rob
