The Strength of Heartland Cooperative Services

In today’s world of big box stores and a one size fits all mentality, where quality and service often takes a back seat, it is nice to be a part of an organization like Heartland Cooperative Services of Dorchester. For decades Heartland has been dedicated to helping local farmers, agricultural businesses along with smaller north central Wisconsin city folks, grow and prosper as well as helping rural homeowners meet the challenges and enjoy the benefits of country living.

Because we keep quality and service high, prices competitive and expenses down, we have never, in the history of this co-op during my 28+ years at the helm, operated in the red. There are few businesses in any industry that can say that. Twenty-eight years ago, our yearly sales were around $4 million and this year we’ll see approximately $150 million. Best of all, year after year, we have returned those profits to our members...in the last 16 years only, Heartland has returned to it's patron customers, some $25,000,000.00 in the form of Cash and Stock!

We are proud of the help we provide our members. Our employees and professionally trained consultants in dairy, feed, agronomy, grain drying, storage and marketing, livestock, fuels, Napa Stores, Lifestyle Stores, lubes and much more have helped increase the efficiency, yield and profits of our farm members and by extension have helped local economies maintain their strength through good times and bad.

We have a new saying around here…”YEP”, Y-E-P stands for Yield, Efficiency and Profits, three pillars to a successful agricultural business. Every service and product we provide to our farm members is focused on one or more of those three areas of business success. It is also a word that comes naturally to us, because it is a friendly way to say yes:  Yep… we can help, yep… we have what your business or rural home needs, yep… we provide quality products….and best of all, yep, as a member of a cooperative, when we prosper, you prosper.

As we look forward to the future, excited about new products, services and acquisitions, as well as the continued development of the Omega Valley Farmers™, LLC feed and consumer products division, we will also never forget that Heartland Cooperative Services of Dorchester will always build on its foundation of Quality, Integrity and unmatched Service.
YEP, those are the principles that have helped us grow and give back to our members year after year.

GM/CEO
