Re: Here we go again.....coop wants to merge

Yep, they`ll talk about the overlap of terragators in the area and a merger will result in the bigger coop getting rid of a couple machines and a few employees.  They`ll talk about the large grain selling volume will generate better bids and cheaper inputs purchases.  You`ll vote for board members from 2 counties away that you`ve never heard from.

 

The president and CEOs like it because they`ll be kingfishers in a bigger pond and need to be compensated accordingly$$$$$

 

All that good stuff and yet the successful Bigshot farmers will continue to avoid the coops like the plague doing their buying and selling directly, cutting out that middleman or some because of their size, will haggle a sweetheart deal with the manager.
