14 Feb 2020
Managers for NEW Cooperative Inc., an agronomy company based in Fort Dodge and operating a site south of Cooper on Highway 4, spoke to the Greene County board of supervisors at the regular meeting on Feb 13 about expanding operations at the Cooper site.
Mark Walter, grain manager, and Frank Huseman, operations manager, said plans are to add a swine feed mill and elevators to the site. Twenty-two acres of land adjoining the current site to the north have been purchased. Plans include an elevator designed for 4.4 million bushels of grain and a feed mill capable of producing around 700,000 tons annually. Concrete silos and steel bins are planned.
