CFA and Mid-Kansas Coop has had a great partnership over the years, and what makes a program work so well and, at times effortlessly, is the support we get from CFA. They are there to answer your questions and fix errors that arise from time to time. I appreciate the relationship and friendship that has developed over the years with CFA and look forward to working with them for many more years.
Bottom line, the crop input program has been great for our customers and for MKC.
Mid-Kansas Cooperative Association
Success is meeting both business plans which ultimately impact their producers with stronger earning distributions. Their producers depend on PCE to stay on task with our key strategies. It is through sound management that the company stays focused on their growth oriented business plan. The construction of Alliance Commodities, the state of the art grain facility, is a estimate to the PCE business growth plan. Alliance Commodities was designed to allow a farmer to unload his semi of corn in 1 minute.
Time is critical in light of the windows of opportunity Mother Nature often allows at harvest time.
