Frenchman Valley Farmers Cooperative Inc. (FVC), provider of agricultural products, services and expertise in Nebraska, Colorado and Wyoming, announced Monday the purchase of the petroleum and agronomy assets of Wheatland Co-op Assn. (WCA), a full service farm and ranch supplier in Wyoming since 1950.
On Nov. 1, 2012, the voting members of WCA voted to accept FVC’s offer to purchase assets of WCA in Wheatland, Wyo. As part of the transaction, FVC will continue to serve the agronomy and petroleum customers in the WCA trade area, while WCA will continue to operate the Country Store offering feed and farm supplies.
“We look forward to being able to continue to offer the services that WCA customers have come to expect at a local level,” said Darrel Vaughn, General Manager of WCA.
“Frenchman Valley Coop appreciates the opportunity to expand our agronomy and petroleum products and services further into Wyoming. We look forward to the challenges and rewards of this endeavor,” stated Doug Ohlson, Interim General Manager of FVC.
The purchase of assets should be completed by Dec. 31, 2012.
Founded in 1912, FVC has 21 locations in southwest Nebraska, northwest Kansas, the Nebraska Panhandle, northeast Colorado and Wyoming. FVC provides services in agronomy, feed, grain, member services, petroleum and grain procurement.
