CP Feeds

CP Feeds is a manufacturing supplier of agricultural mixes and feed ingredients serving customers in Eastern Wisconsin. The business was started in July of 2000 with the merger of local feed mills. One of the businesses involved in that merger was Premier Feeds, LLC. Country Visions Cooperative's involvement in Premier Feeds, LLC gave the cooperative a 45% ownership share of CP Feeds at for over a decade. In September of 2011, CP Feeds took over the feed business of the former Agri-Land Cooperative in Malone. That acquisition gave CP Feeds an expanded customer base and a new facility that helped to provide an additional source for products to serve these customers.

With the merger in 2013 between Country Visions and Agri-Partners Co-ops, the organization now owns a 60.8% share of CP Feeds. The success of CP Feeds continues to have a very positive impact on the bottom line for Country Visions as the two companies continue to work together to provide the products and services necessary to make our customer's agricultural businesses successful.

What is a Co-op?

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) defines a cooperative as a user-owned, user-controlled business that distributes benefits on the basis of use. Member users, or patrons, own and democratically elect the board of directors, which provides oversight of the co-op. Net earnings are distributed on the basis of proportional use, or patronage, rather than on investment.

Cooperative associations have been organized throughout history to carry out many different activities, often in response to economic and social stress. Cooperative organizations in the United States first appeared in the late 1700's and today co-ops can be found in all sectors of the U.S. economy. Consumer, purchasing and farm supply cooperatives are all organized to provide the specialized goods or services that their member patrons want to buy.

By combining member demand, a co-op can provide better availability, selection, pricing, or delivery of products or services to individual consumers, businesses or farmers. Farm supply co-ops cost-effectively supply input, fuel and agronomy services to farm business owners.
