August- “Dog Days” of Summer

Aug 01, 2023


It has been hot and dry, so, we will welcome any rain we can get.  According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, the term “Dog Days” traditionally refers to a particularly hot and humid period occurring during the summer months of July and August in the Northern Hemisphere.  
   
At Country Visions Cooperative Country Stores, we are celebrating another “Dog Day”.  National Dog Day is August 26, 2023.  We are encouraging all our customers to guess how many dog treats are in a jar from August 1-26. Correct guesses (or the closest without going over,) will win a jar of dog treats, a $20 Country Visions Country Store gift certificate, AND, a jar of dog treats to be donated to an animal shelter of their choice.  In case of a tie, a drawing will determine a winner from the correct guesses. One winner will be selected from each of our Country Stores located in Brillion, Valders, Sheboygan Falls, De Pere, New London, and Mishicot.

County Fairs will be in full swing this month. The show feeds are on sale!  Purina Honor Show feeds in 50lb bags are $1 off per bag. Also, Purina High Octane Supplements are $2 off. The supplements come in 25 lb and 50 lb bags or 20 lb and 30 lb pails.  For the chicken raisers, we have a stock-up sale! Purina Layena+ Hi Pro Pellets in a 40# bag is $4 off for the month of August.

Country Visions Cooperative continues its Centennial celebration by offering an item in our stores for 100 pennies! ($1.00-you do not actually have to pay with 100 pennies) During the week of August 14-19th. In each of our Country Stores and Cenex C-Stores, you will have the opportunity to purchase (1) bottle of cool, refreshing Country Visions Cooperative Natural Spring Water, 16.9 oz for $1.00. You can find this special at our participating Cenex C-Stores in Mishicot, Manitowoc Rapids, Branch, Reedsville, De Pere, and Valders. Also, in our Country Visions Country Stores in Sheboygan Falls, Mishicot, and, Brillion.  

With the weather still warm, and fall around the corner, it’s a good time to put out blocks for the white-tail deer.  Domain Outdoor manufactures a powerful, protein-based deer block called “Stockpile”.  This block offers premium ingredients and long-range attractions to provide deer with critical nutrition when they need it most. Stockpile Deer Blocks are BUY one at $13, GET one FREE.  Grab yours today, with a price like this, they won’t be around long.

Our Valders Cenex C-Store & Country Store, Mishicot Country Store, and Brillion Country Store offer Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Hunting and Fishing Licenses. We offer this value-added service to save you time…Some of these locations can even renew your boat or ATV registrations.  (Services might vary per location, inquire today!)

Did you know Country Visions Cooperative has its very own custom blend of wild bird seeds?  With Country Visions celebrating its 100th year, we only thought it would be appropriate to offer our Birdie’s Best Premium Wild Bird Seed on sale for the month of August.  This blend attracts chickadees, grosbeaks, cardinals, nuthatches, and goldfinches. The 40 lb bags are $5 off and the 20 lb bags are $3 off.  

The extremely dry weather sends many bugs searching for water.  You may find ants, flies, wasps, and yellow jackets are more abundant and bothersome. Don’t let these pests ruin your summer.  Our Country Stores have products for your home, garage, and barn.  We have a wide assortment of sprays, traps, baits, pour-on, and powders.  Please stop by today and ask our associates what product is best for your particular pests.  The selection may vary by location.

One common question that is asked is, “Can I use my Country Visions Cooperative Rewards Card at a Country Visions Country Store?” The answer is,  “Yes, absolutely!”  You can use it at our Cenex C-Stores AND our Country Visions Country Stores.  TUESDAY is double points day-you earn double the points on purchases of gas and products. Are you a Country Visions Rewards Card holder?  If not, you can sign up in-store at any of our locations, receive your card the same day and start accumulating points. If you lost your card, no problem, we can search for your account number, transfer points, and issue a new card.
