Good Morning,

There are a couple of things on my mind as I write this morning.  One is, of course, the dry weather.  We desperately need some rain.  Our hay stocks are already in short supply.  MFA does have some feed products to help with hay shortages.  Come in and see us for more information.       

The other thing is vandalism.  Once again our cooperative has been struck by vandals.  Someone actually shot a couple of rifle rounds into our store.  We will have to endure a lot of expense to make the needed repairs.  Ocasionally we have someone working in the middle of the night upgrading computers, or something along those lines.  We don't want anybody shot.    

Most people don't realize that we are completely farmer owned.  All of our funding comes from our famer members.  When we have to pay for repairs, like replacing store front windows, that money comes out of our farmers' pockets. 

I guess that I needed to vent a little as it is disturbing when something like this happens.

I do hope that you have a great day and thanks for visiting our site.

Phil Perkins
General Manager
