To provide a quality competitive financial alternative to our membership that will facilitate the ethically responsible production of sustainable, safe, high quality beef utilizing new trends and technologies in pursuit of this undertaking
WHAT IS A FEEDER COOPERATIVE
Our Feeder Cooperative is made up of a group of producers who have combined resources in conjunction with the Government of Alberta and the Bank of Montreal to provide a cost effective means of financing cattle that may not be available to producers when acting individually. This expresses itself in the amount of security required to achieve financing and the competitive interest rates that can be made available on such loans. Our Feeder Cooperative provides financing to all sizes of operations including those new to the Industry.
