Founded in 1950.

The Cloud County Co-Op was founded in 1950 with an original capacity of 250,000 bushels. We went through several expansions in 1953, 1958 and 1975 which brought the total capacity to 1 million bushels.

Expanded in 1985.

Six acres of land west of Concordia was purchased along Highway 9 and we began construction of a 530,000 bushels facility, then later expanded it to a 890,000-bushel facility.

Jamestown opened in 1992.

We purchased the Jamestown Cooperative Elevator in Jamestown, Kansas, which added an additional 741,000 bushels to our then 1.2 million-bushel capacity.

Partnered with AgMark in 1999.

Four grain cooperatives and one farm supply cooperative in North Central Kansas joined together to form AgMark LLC. AgMark LLC then purchased our facility along Highway 9 and upgraded to 114-car train loader. At the time, Cloud County Coop owned 30% of AgMark LLC.
