Harvest time in our region has been in full swing with most crops being completed and fall planting well on its way to being wrapped up. It seems the harvest was good for those that were lucky enough to skirt the “great white combine”. Your cooperative has been working extra time to make sure you are getting the supplies you need to get that harvest in and now start planning for the next cropping season.
The volatile product pricing has been a real challenge for all of us as we try to juggle cost of production with current commodity prices. It has been our goal at Town & Country Supply to work hard to come up with programs to help reduce the risk of these volatile prices by offering buying options to help lock in costs. This will hopefully give our patrons a chance to lock in a contract price on their own production at a rate that would result in a profit. We will continue to look for ways to help our patrons succeed as we move into the future.
Fiscal Year 2023
It is also time for our management team to begin planning for our Fiscal Year 2023. Our team is looking into next year to determine which assets we may need and what potential changes we can make to continue to serve our patrons and generate the income necessary to pay for those new assets. At Town & Country Supply, we believe we need to continually rotate our older equipment in a timely manner to keep our operations running smoothly and to ensure that we can be there for our patrons when they need us. This budget process will take a couple of months to complete. It culminates with a presentation to the Board of Directors, where they give their stamp of approval and a directive to carry out the actions necessary to make it happen.
I would like to thank all our patrons who have supported us through the years. We will continue to strive to meet your needs as we move forward.
