About Us

 
Safety 

At Cooperative Elevator Co., we strive to put safety first in all operations. The agronomy department is dedicated to quality service and products without jeopardizing the safety of our customers or our employees. We hold monthly location safety meetings to keep all employees involved in our safety procedures and updates. We make an effort to update producers of new ways to be safe in our seasonal newsletter, at meetings and on our website. We have developed a quality line of products from industry leading companies that are the safest to use when handled correctly. State-of-the-art technology and personal protective equipment allow us to service you in the safest way possible. Our safety practices and procedures help guide a safe environment but it is the attitude of our employees and patrons that make our safety culture!

Sustainability

The Agronomy Department is well aware of the growing world population. We feel it is our duty to be the best stewards of the land to make it possible to feed the world for years to come. Here in the Thumb of Michigan, we take pride in our diverse production of drybeans, sugarbeets, wheat, alfalfa, corn and soybeans. We focus on reducing the carbon footprint on every acre by being as efficient as possible from seed to commodity. 
Research

Research is a very important part of your business and ours. Together through local on farm data trials we can partner to find the best solutions locally. Each and every product we deliver to you has been researched several years before it's even brought to our local trials. Our agriculture world is changing so quickly that our products change even faster. We are dedicated to learning everything we can to service our producers.
