Emery Facility Ready for Action
I’d like to start my article with a brief introduction. Though I’m relatively new to United Prairie, having joined the team last May, I’m not new to the ag industry or the Emery area. My family farms within four miles of Emery, so I know many of the current and future customers I’ll be working with. I’ve been in the ag business since 2002, working in ag retail, seed and seed management.
We’re just putting the finishing touches on our new, full-service retail center here in Emery, and we’re excited for spring. The facility features a two-bay, fully-automated product loadout center, a shop and a new office. We will also have a new Hagie applicator dedicated to this location. All of this will allow us to be extremely efficient during the spring agronomy season.
I know United Prairie is new to many farmers in the Emery area, but those producers who have used us here are excited about the agronomy center. United Prairie is a progressive, service-focused company. The fact that we invest heavily in generating our own local research data through the Innovation Farm and area test plots is a big plus for area producers. They can have confidence in what we recommend, as it has been tested and proven under their growing conditions.
I’d encourage you to stop in and take a look around the new agronomy center when you’re in the area. Don’t miss our open house on March 24, from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. We’re looking forward to doing business with Emery-area customers this spring.
