The Osage Cooperative Elevator was founded by area producers on February 13, 1945. For
the past 65 years it has served farmers and consumers in the Osage area with a wide range of
products and services. The Coop is owned by 465 members. They are made up of 308 Class A
and 157 Class B members. Class A members are defined under Iowa Cooperative law as agricultural risk takers and have the right to vote on Coop matters. Class B members are customers
who do business, but are not agricultural risk takers. They do not vote in Coop matters but both
groups share in the profits of the Coop as they are distributed amongst the owners.
The Coop is operated under a seven person Board of Directors. They set policy, direction,
and hire a manager. Directors are elected to serve a three year term at the annual meeting.
There are seventeen full time employees with another five to six employees needed seasonally.
