Grounded in Tradition
Invested in your future
Being a grower-owner means better control of your future, more value and reduced risk.
We encourage you to visit your local co-op gin to learn how being part of the cooperative system works to improve your bottom line – in both good and bad times.
When you join a co-op, you automatically get an investment in your future that makes money for you, not from you. That’s The Co-op Advantage®.
Check out the list below for a few key things to keep in mind when considering a co-op:
- The Co-op System – Once you become a grower-owner of a co-op, you own the supply chain – ginning, warehousing, marketing, and cottonseed processing. You can be confident that you are ensuring reliable, cost-effective infrastructure that is always there to process your cotton.
- Dividends and Stock Ownership – All of the profits of the cooperative come back to you when you need them most. The profits earned at your cooperative return to you in the form of a dividend payment. And the stock you earn each year keeps your co-op running strong and then returns to you in the future.
- Regional Cooperative Benefits – Participating in multiple co-ops means you capture value in every part of the supply chain. When you add it all up, the returns can’t be beat.
