AgMark, LLC

The boards of AgMark LLC and Concordia Terminal LLC are pleased to announce the approval of Central Valley Ag as a new owner and grain marketing member of AgMark and new owner in Concordia Terminal.

AgMark LLC announced that Central Valley Ag will become a new owner and grain marketing member of AgMark LLC, which is currently owned by Farmway Co-op Inc., Cloud County Co-op Elevator Association, Concordia Terminal LLC, Randall Farmers Co-op Union and Pro-Ag Marketing. The strategic arrangement between AgMark and Central Valley Ag locations will increase grain movement and marketing efficiencies for both organizations.

In addition, Concordia Terminal LLC announced that Central Valley Ag has purchased a percentage of the Concordia grain terminal in Concordia KS which is currently owned by Cloud County Co-op Elevator Association, Farmway Co-op Inc and Randall Farmers Co-op Union.

“Central Valley Ag has 11 Kansas locations which will complement and expand our grain origination, marketing and handling network,” said Mark Hafliger, president of AgMark. “The opportunity of additional cooperatives becoming part of AgMark will bring greater value to all owners and ultimately the local producers.”

“Concordia Terminal LLC is pleased to have Central Valley Ag as an additional partner in the Concordia Train loading facility and look forward to working with the partners to provide global market access for our producer members,” said Mark Paul, president of Concordia Terminal LLC. “This will help the members have access to global markets and the logistics to better handle future harvest needs.”

“We believe this opportunity further demonstrates how local cooperatives can work together to add value for their members,” said Carl Dickinson, CEO of CVA. “We feel that joining other cooperatives is a much better answer than building duplicate assets.”

The effective dates of these transactions will occur in early 2016. For additional information contact:

 Mark Hafliger, President AgMark LLC at 785-738-9641

 Mark Paul, President Concordia Terminal LLC at 785-243-2080

 Reed Nelsen, SVP Marketing Central Valley Ag at 402-972-7924

About AgMark

AgMark LLC is a north central Kansas-based grain company headquartered in Beloit, Kansas that was created in 1999 to bring long-term grain marketing solutions to its producer members. AgMark LLC is owned by Concordia Terminal LLC and four farmer cooperatives: Farmway Co-op, Inc. of Beloit; Cloud County Co-op Elevator Association of Concordia; Randall Farmers Co-op Union of Randall and Pro-Ag Marketing of Kensington. For more information about AgMark please visit our website at http://www.agmarkllc.com. 

About Concordia Terminal LLC

In 2015, the three owner cooperatives of AgMark Terminal LLC agreed to restructure the shuttle loading facility to Concordia Terminal LLC. In 1999 when the Terminal was constructed, it was the most automated and fastest train loading facility in the Central United States being serviced by the BNSF Railroad. 

About Central Valley Ag

Central Valley Ag is a farmer-owned cooperative headquartered in York, NE. CVA is a forward-thinking leader in grain, agronomy, feed and energy. CVA serves patrons from its locations in Nebraska, Kansas and Iowa.

Join the fun and festivities at Solomon Valley Cinema.  H&R Block Beloit is sponsoring a free movie day at the Cinema on Saturday, December 5th.

According to Amanda Schwerman, Cinema Manager, “We want to show appreciation to people in the area for their support throughout the year.  Their patronage is what makes it possible to keep the doors open, the prices down, and the movie selection good.”

This year, the Cinema is partnering with H&R Block Beloit to bring Elf to the theatre.   “We chose to sponsor this program because of our commitment to community,” said Robert Davis, H&R Block Beloit Owner.  “We feel fortunate to have such a nice facility in the area and to get new releases in the theatre so quickly.”

There is no admission charge for the movies.  Concessions will be for sale.  The movie is open to people of all ages. There will be a drawing at each showing for punch cards with 10 free adult admissions and 10 free child admissions.

Christmas is a time to enjoy family and friends.  Join your friends at Solomon Valley Cinema on December 5th at 2:00 pm for Elf.
