Retirement Equity

Dec 10, 2019

Established in 2001, Glacial Plains Cooperative was formed by combining United Farmers Elevator, and Swift Coop Oil Company. Each year, Glacial Plains Cooperative pays out retained equity to our Patron owners.  Patrons who have reached ‘retirement’ age are issued a check for their retained earnings from doing business with the cooperative.

On December 5, 2019, Glacial Plains Cooperative paid out nearly $454,000 in patron equity.  The management and board of directors appreciate each and every patron who has done business with the cooperatives, helping build and make this company successful.
