3. Choosing us pays dividends ... 

We will earn your business by adding value to your farming operations.  You will also have the opportunity to earn patronage on most of your transactions with our Co-op.
 

Subject to earnings, the Board of Directors declares patronage dividends annually. The dividends are declared on members’ eligible businesses. These are generally reinvested in the Co-op in patronage loan accounts under the members’ names and are paid out over time. Interest accrues on the investment account balances. Interest payments of $50.00 or less are deposited in the member's mandatory member loan account and will continue to earn interest. 

 

 

For 2023, Patronage declared on eligible transactions were:

 

  • $2.25 per metric ton of Animal Nutrition feed

  • $6.37 per acre of white beans ($0.18 per bushel)

  • $5.82 per acre of IP soybeans ($0.12 per bushel)

  • $4.66 per acre of crush beans ($0.09 per bushel)

  • $7.99 per acre of corn ($0.05 per bushel)

  • $5.81 per acre of wheat ($0.07 per bushel)

  • $1 for every $200 spent on energy products

 

Values of patronage used in this example are based on average commercial crop market prices, retail products and commercial services priced with Hensall Co-op throughout the 2023 fiscal year. 

 

 

4. SEED

 

Our member information initiative is called the SEED series. SEED is an acronym for Success, Enrichment and Economic Development. This series provides the information you need to succeed in your farming operations by strengthening your bottom line and growing your asset base.
