After eight months of countless meetings and deliberations, members of the Farmers Cooperative Grain Company in Merna, Nebraska voted to merge with Cooperative Producers, Inc. of Hastings, Nebraska.
The business operations of the two cooperatives will be combined as of Jan. 1, 2012. The board of directors of both cooperatives, unanimously agreeing on the merger, believed both patrons and equity holders alike will benefit from the larger, stronger consolidated cooperative.
