MKC and Frontier Ag discuss merger

Staff writer

Mid-Kansas Cooperative and Frontier Ag are moving forward with a process to merge the two co-ops.

They began to explore the option in September, according to MCK Communications Director Kerry Watson. The final vote on the merger will be sometime in mid to late March.

“Our goal is for our producers to work their immediate locations so they won’t see any changes to their local operations,” she said. “Currently there are a lot of behind-the-scenes decisions being made and when we can release more to the public we will.”

Brad Cowan, Frontier Ag President and CEO said in a press release that both companies felt it was the right time to pursue a merger and to strategically position both companies for the future.

Dave Christiansen president and CEO of MKC, said both cooperatives share a similar vision.

“Together we have the potential to increase our relevance in the industry which will leverage our vendor relationships. The benefits this will deliver to our stockholders, employees, customers, and communities are significant,” he said in the release.
