Contracts

We do have fuel and propane contracts available. Fuel contracts are done on a day by day basis. Fuel and propane has become so volatile that to take the coop's risk out of it we had to make this change. If interested in a contract please contact the elevator at 970-334-2204.

Fuel

Are you buying the right diesel fuel? Ruby-Fieldmaster diesel fuel exceeds all standards for any make or model of diesel engines. The straight #2 diesel has had the most of the sulfur taken out for pollution reasons. The sulfur was the lubricant for your engine. Without this lubricant it can become very hard on the injectors, etc. Ruby-Fieldmaster has an additive package that contains this lubricant. It also gives you a higher cetane for quicker, easier starts and will not gel the fuel as easily. Ruby-Fieldmaster costs three cents a gallon more than the straight #2 diesel. Money well invested. I have talked to patrons who have tried both diesels and they claim they get more power and better

Oil Shuttle

We do have an oil shuttle program. This is a program that entitles you to a 120 gallon shuttle that is filled on a route with savings on your oil. The tanks and stand are at no cost to you. You do have to take 100 gallon of oil per year to qualify for this program. Cenex will not fill just any container in fear of contamination, as they do warrant their product. You will appreciate the convenience that comes from no longer handling messy drums. If interested talk to Phil Schumacher about this. We have also put in shuttles at our station, trying to reduce the price of oil.

April 30, 2019

April 30, 2019 we will be closing at noon for our year-end inventory count. Please plan your fuel and feed orders with this in mind.

Propane Safety Line Checks

Propane safety line checks are a very important part of our propane business. We do about two hundred fifty per year. Businesses, churches, schools anything that have gatherings must be done every year. Residential homes need to be done every five years. This past week we ran across five separate homes that had leaks. Two were severe enough we installed new lines from the home to the propane tank. With this all said we feel these safety checks are very important. These checks are not free, we do charge for this service. You need to be safe and we want you to be safe.

Propane Routes

We are encouraging all of our customers to be on a route or order enough gallons to make it worth our delivery. We have run into problems with customers not wanting to be on routes and ordering 100 to 200 gallons of propane. We lose money delivering to these people in the country. You do not save money by doing it this way either. We have taken on a larger territory and we do not have time to stop and run out for one person. Please make plans to be put on a route or order enough gallons to make it worth the delivery or your cost of propane will be higher. We need to do everything to keep the cost of delivery down and that includes you doing your part.

Propane

Don't run out of propane. Serious safety hazards, including fire or explosion can result. If an appliance valve or a gas line is left open when the propane supply runs out, a leak could occur when the system is recharged with propane. Air and moisture could get into an empty or depleted storage tank, which can cause rust build-up inside the tank. Rust can decrease the concentration of the odor of propane, making it harder to smell. If your propane tank runs out of gas, any pilot lights on your appliances will go out. This can be extremely dangerous if not handled properly. If your tank runs out of gas, a leak check must be performed by us. If on one of our routes, this would not be your faul

Feed

For all of your feed grinding, mixing, and delivery please contact Gary or Jason at 970-334-2341. We do make deliveries in all surrounding communities. With pasture just around the corner, come see us for your salt and mineral needs.

Our Condolences

In March we had three stockholders and one customer of our Coop pass away, Janet (Johnson) Willich of Stoneham, CO; Stan Raddatz of Lorenzo; NE, Don Koester of Akron, CO; and Alberta Pevler of Grover, CO. Our Sympathy goes out to their families. They will be missed

Annual Meeting

We are always looking for board members. Our 102nd annual meeting is on June 20th so think about running for a position. We have a good time at our Coop and it is very educational. This year we have one position up for election. This year please contact Phil Schumacher @ 970-520-3881 or Jim Gardiner @ 970-466-0973 if you or anyone else is interested in running for a position.
