Dear Customer Owners,

Happy May!  I hope this email finds you all doing well and getting into the full swing of Spring farm and ranch activities.  I believe much of our territory has experienced heavy winds over these past few weeks and I sincerely hope we see that subside and we will be hoping for ample moisture as your crops and pastures grow this year.


Mailing Scam

We wanted to bring awareness to a recent mailing scam to ensure you all stay safe with your personal information. It was brought to our attention that an unidentified company is attempting to gain personal information and access to customer-owners addresses with the intent to be deceitful and destructive. We encourage all of you to keep an eye out for any suspicious activity via email or snail mail and never provide your info to anyone you aren’t 100% sure is a real, secure source you trust. If you have encountered such an attempt in the last month, please take the proper corrective actions to ensure nothing critical was compromised.
