Centra Sota
Our story began in 1922, when cen-
Who We Are
tral Minnesota farmers formed a
dairy cooperative and became the
first to manufacture Land O’Lakes®
sweet cream butter.
Over the years, our core business
changed with the farmers’ demands.
We entered the feed business in
the 1960s, became an agronomy
supplier in the 1970s, and began
offering energy products in the
1980s.
Our customer base changed, too. In
recent years, we’ve expanded our
trade territory to include even more
agricultural land. While farmers
remain our primary focus, we’ve
also begun serving non-farmers
with energy products, lawn care
services, and advice on caring for
companion animals.
Today, Centra Sota and Centra Sota
Lake Region, LLC employs over
100 people at agronomy centers,
feed mills, bulk petroleum plants,
and country stores in communities
across a 100-square-mile trade
territory. ◗

As a cooperative that exists for the benefit of its
members, Centra Sota is more than just another
vendor. We flourish when our customers flourish.
We decline when they decline. In a very real way,
we are partners who work together for mutual
benefit.
More than a business arrangement, we really care
about our customers and their families. Caring
relationships last through thick and thin. ◗

Our unique organization, as a
farmer-owned cooperative, offers
both town and country customers
the assurance that we’re in this
business for the long haul. Centra
Sota will walk alongside our
agricultural producers throughout
their farming careers. As a result,
we will be around to serve our
customers for years to come.

LiVing The VisiOn
That’s our Brand Vision: “to be
the partner you can count on,
providing real solutions for today
and tomorrow.” ◗
The best illustration of this Brand
Vision is Centra sota’s people. They
“live the vision” daily, as they deliver
energy products to farms and homes,
work rations for livestock, load feed
into our customers’ pickups, or scout
fields for weed and insect pests.
