Welcome to Producers Cooperative Association
Today, PRODUCERS is a diversified agricultural supply cooperative providing livestock feeds, seed, fertilizer, fuel and lubricants, and agricultural equipment and a wide array of farm and ranch supplies to more than 10,000 farmers and ranchers throughout southeast and south central Texas.
For a one-time investment of $10, agricultural producers, regardless of size, can become a stockholder and actively participate in the organization. Through the patronage refund (dividend) program active members share in the profits generated annually by their cooperative. These dividends are distributed each spring in cash and preferred stock/equity credits, and are based upon the previous year’s net earnings, and the amount of business done with the association. Preferred stock is currently being retired every fifth year, and it represents one of the best stock retirement programs of any cooperative in the country.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED
Our modern bulk blending plant houses dry granular fertilizer ingredients – Urea and NBBT Stabilized Urea, Ammonium Sulfate, DAP, MAP, Potash, K-Mag and chelated micronutrients including Wolf Trax® DG micronutrients. We can make any grade to match a soil sample on demand. Multiple blending units and holding bins above our scale streamline the loading process, reducing valuable response time.
We now carry Nutralime® DG High Calcium pelleted limestone that can be applied to your field to raise the pH according to your soil needs. Nutralime® is more effective than traditional pulverized products due to its very fine grind. Because of this, it can be applied at rates 5 to 10 times lower than regular ag lime and begin to change soil pH within two weeks. The ability to store this lime onsite in our agronomy warehouse in large quantities allows us to avoid transportation and supply delays with regular ag lime. Since it is compressed into a durable, low dust pellet, it can also be applied with our drag spreaders and does not require the purchase of a full truckload, allowing us to service all sizes of fields.
Custom spreading of fertilizer, crop protection products, lime and seed for winter pasture is available. In addition to this, we have a large fleet of ground drive drag spreaders for do-it-yourself customers. For large orders, we have multi-compartment tenders that can hold up to 22 tons. A wide selection of fall and spring forage and crop seeds offer producers many alternatives. Oats, ryegrass, cereal rye, wheat, legumes and wildlife mixes are available in the fall for mixing and application with dry fertilizer. This allows for one easy application in the establishment of valuable winter pastures. In the spring, we have proven and popular varieties of Forage Sorghum, Sorghum Sudan, Millet, and multiple hybrid Bermudagrass options for turf, grazing and hay production.
