Abstract

In recent years three important trends have become apparent among grain marketing and farm supply cooperatives. These farmer owned firms have been rapidly investing in infrastructure, reformulating profit distribution and equity strategies, and have pursued consolidation with other cooperatives. This manuscript explores the factors contributing to those trends, the implications for cooperatives leaders, and the impacts on farmer members.
