Agricultural cooperative MFA brings together 45,000 farmers in Missouri and adjacent states. One of the US's oldest regional co-ops, supplying its member/owners with agronomy, distribution, financing, and purchasing services, it runs more than 140 retail farm supply centers and works with independent dealers. MFA supplies animal feeds, seed, fertilizer, and crop protection products. The co-op also provides its members with agronomy services, animal-health products, and farm supplies. It also offers marketing services, and is the publisher of Today's Farmer. Agmo Corporation, MFA's finance company, provides co-op members longer credit terms for purchases made through MFA's retail outlets.

Geographic Reach

The company has fertilizer terminals on the Mississippi River, as well as on the Missouri and Arkansas rivers.


MFA's plant food sales exceed one million tons each year.


Part of MFA's strategy is to focus on growth initiatives and find opportunistic products and services to provide to its customers. Strategic river terminals and other bulk facilities give it capacity to deliver bulk quantities of plant food. It also invests in rolling stock, trucks, and application equipment to ensure bulk products are efficiently delivered to retail customers.

Mergers and Acquisitions

Expanding its assets, in 2013 MFA acquired Producers Grain Company's assets in El Dorado Springs, Walker, Bronaugh, and Nevada in Missouri.


MFA is owned by it member/farmers.

Company Background

The co-op was established in 1914 when seven Missouri farmers got together to buy binder twine.
