NEW Connect App Offers Direct Deposit on Grain & Deferred Payments

Throughout the years, growers have been able to use technology to receive scale tickets, view cash bids, and stay up to date on location harvest hours.

Most recently, growers have been able to sign grain contracts, submit offers, view balances, transactions, and commodity prices through NEW Cooperative’s mobile app, NEW Connect.

Now, growers have the options for direct deposit of your grain and deferred payments.

“With our growers having the option for Direct Deposit, it will allow payments to be more convenient and faster for them. With the COVID- 19 pandemic this allows our customers to continue to conduct business in a normal fashion.”, said Mark Walter, NEW Cooperative Grain Manager.

Sign up today for direct deposit of your grain and deferred payments by following these steps:

  • Have the APP to sign contracts and print settlements.
  • Fill out the ACH form available on our website.
    Link: http://www.newcoop.com/new-connect-app/
  • Return the ACH form to NEW Cooperative
  • Once the banking information is setup all future grain payments will be Direct Deposit.
  • Producers will receive an email notification of payment.

For questions or more information, contact your local NEW Cooperative location or the Grain Department at 515-955-2044.

Our precautions include following all CDC recommendations and ensuring supply chain readiness and contingency planning around our plant and field operations.

Our Commitment to Employee Safety During Product Deliveries and Pickups

Our Employees on Your farms
Over the next few months, we will have many employees visiting your farms. Please be assured that all NEW Coop employees will be adhering to our Pandemic Protocols. If there are any additional precautions that you wish for us to be made aware of, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

With the government designating agriculture as a critical infrastructure industry, and NEW Cooperative’s customers relying on us to assist in planting this springs crop, our company does not have the option of shutting down. We must be diligent with our preventive efforts of COVID-19 and ready to respond in any way, if exposure elevates. We will keep you posted as we continue to evaluate the situation.

NEW Cooperative Members and Customers

As we continue to navigate the outbreak of COVID – 19, (Coronavirus), NEW Cooperative is taking steps to reduce unnecessary risk for employees, their families and customers while providing safety measures as we move forward.

We have communicated to all of our employees about staying home if not feeling well and social distancing while increasing cleaning and personal hygiene protocol.

Grain Settlements
• Use NEW Cooperative’s Mobile App to sign grain contracts. If the mobile App is not used, grain contracts will be mailed to you for signature, and must be returned via mail, or scanned and emailed back to your branch location’s office.
• DIRECT DEPOSIT is now available for customers using Connection Central or the NEW Cooperative Mobile App. Additional information regarding how to sign up for direct deposit is on our website.
• If direct deposit is not utilized, grain settlement checks will be mailed to you rather than picking up in person. Please verify your address for mailing with your branch office.

Attend an informative workshop in Lake City on cover crops, edge-of-field practices

The North Raccoon Farm to River Partnership project is hosting a workshop to inform farmers and landowners about the benefits of conservation practices including cover crops, bioreactors and saturated buffers. The event will review how these practices can be added with 100 percent paid installation.

The free workshop is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2020, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Lake City Community Center, 118 E. Washington Street.

Using cover crops in a corn-soybean rotation can reduce soil erosion and nitrate in waterbodies as well as improve soil organic matter, water infiltration and weed suppression. Steve Killpack, a southwest Iowa farmer and long-time cover crop user, will share how he successfully incorporated cover crops into his crop production system. Scott Nelson, director of agronomy at Iowa Soybean Association (ISA), will discuss the agronomic and environmental benefits of using cover crops.

Edge-of-field conservation practices, such as bioreactors and saturated buffers, remove nitrate from tile-drained water before it enters a river or stream. Chris Hay, ISA senior manager of production systems innovation, is an expert on conservation drainage and will share how these practices work, their environmental benefits, and where they should be installed for optimum performance.

Jeff Sporrer, Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Carroll County District Conservationist, will review opportunities and programs available for cover crops and edge-of-field practices.

Chance McDonald, Farm to River Partnership conservation agronomist, will host the workshop. He will provide an overview of the project’s goals and how farmers and landowners can participate.

The workshop is open to the public and is free to attend, lunch is included. Registration is recommended. RSVP to Sue Derscheid, via email: sderscheid@iasoybeans.com or phone: 515-334-1063 by Jan. 17.

COOPERATIVES PARTNER TO DONATE TO BAGLEY RESIDENTS

More than 120,000 bottles of water to provide for safe, drinking water

 Land O’Lakes, Inc., in coordination with local co-ops Heartland Co-op, Landus Cooperative, and NEW Cooperative, are committed to providing residents of Bagley with three truckloads of Fareway drinking water. The donation will assist 300 residents in attaining safe, bottled water for consumption. The first truckload of water was delivered today, and shipments will continue as space comes available.

“This is a great, collaborative effort, working with Land O’Lakes and the other cooperatives, in helping a local community in need,” said Dave Coppess, Heartland Co-op EVP of Sales and Marketing.

“Everyone at Landus Cooperative is proud to join with Land O’Lakes and our surrounding cooperatives to help the residents of Bagley during a difficult time,” said Tim Unruh, Landus Cooperative Chief Agronomy Officer.

“We are happy to collaborate with our neighboring cooperatives and be a part of this donation to help out the residents of Bagley, especially with the holiday season approaching soon,” said Gary Moritz, NEW Cooperative Communications Director.

“We are excited to assist the co-op partners in helping provide for safe, bottled drinking water,” said Fareway President and CEO Reynolds W. Cramer.

“The citizens of Bagley are very appreciative and welcome the donation of water from the co-ops,” said the City of Bagley Mayor Emily Chapman-Olesen. “Residents are currently using bottled water for both drinking and cooking.”

City of Bagley residents were provided with a drinking water health advisory in March of 2019 and were encouraged to consume bottled water only. High levels of manganese were found in the local water supply, above that of the Environmental Protection Agency’s health recommendations. During elections on November 5, the citizens of Bagley approved a franchise with Xenia Rural Water. Anticipated completion of water connection is summer of 2020.

The donated water will be available to residents beginning on Saturday, November 23 at 603 Main Street in Bagley.
