Landus to Tell Harvest Plans; CEO to Share Vision for Cooperative
Farmer-owners invited to attend one of nine localized virtual meetings
AMES, IA (August 14, 2020) – Area farmers are invited to hear from Landus leaders on how drought and the recent derecho may impact harvest logistics at the cooperative’s grain facilities in the area. Virtual meetings are slated beginning Wed., August 19, 2020.
“We know getting ready for harvest is one of our farmer-owners most critical times of the year,” said Matt Carstens, President, and CEO of Landus. “We’re hosting a series of quick, easy-to-join virtual meetings to keep everyone on the same page about location-specific harvest details, COVID-19 impacts, as well as share our vision for the future of your cooperative and where we’re going.”
Growers can select their location-specific meeting to discuss grain policy updates as well as news and updates from the recent storm. Approximately 30 minutes in length, growers are encouraged to be ready with questions as location and regional managers will also be on the call.
The cooperative is using GoToWebinar, a free online tool that allows participants to dial-in on their phone or log-in online to view location maps and visuals.
“We’re trying to be efficient with our farmer-owners time and practice social distancing for these meetings, so we’ve moved them online,” added Carstens. “We still want to support our rural communities, so all growers who register and attend a session will be entered to win a $50 gift card to one of their locally-owned restaurants.”
