Decature COOP Association Respnose to COVID-19



Our annual meeting in April has been cancelled as well. We need to have something similar stating the following: "Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, our annual meeting in April has been cancelled. We are currently looking at late June or August as a replacement date.  As soon as the decision has been made, we will make an announcement. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this challenging time. We are all in this together."




In light of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, and the fact that the seasonal influenza (flu) virus is also widespread, we are taking proactive steps to address a number of business concerns. First and foremost, we want to maintain a safe workplace and encourage and/or adopt practices protecting the health of employees, customers, visitors or others. We also want to ensure the continuity of business operations during this pandemic.

All of our locations will remain open. In an effort to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 we are encouraging everyone who is needing to sell grain, divide fertilizer, or has questions on accounts to please call the Administration Office at 785-475-2234 or email any of the employees from the list below before coming into the office.

  • We also have direct deposit available to you when you are selling your grain. You can contact Brenda or Lori to get this setup. Once completed the money is deposited into your account the next business day.

These are also great alternatives offers that can protect our Employees and Members to any additional exposure to COVID-19.


During this time, we are encouraging our staff to follow virus prevention strategies such as hand washing and avoiding close personal contact when possible.  We would also ask our patrons and vendors to avoid close personal contact at all of our locations to minimize the risk of exposure. Our lobby’s will be closed to non-business traffic.


Please call your local location with requests for assistance during this time. We have listed their phone numbers below. If you don’t feel comfortable coming into the locations for feed, supplies, or tire repairs during the COVID-19 concern. We are more than willing to work something out with you.
