We Have The Successful Ottawa Cooperative Ass'n In the fall of 1949 the Ottawa Cooperative existed as an idea in the minds 'of three local farmers. The following spring other interested farmers were called together for a meeting. Forty men were present at this first meeting, and they decided to proceed with organizing their own business, which is now known at the Ottawa Cooperative Association. On February 9, 1950, the charter for their organization was received. By May 15, 1950, 408 farmers had bought membership in the new organization by buying common shares with a value of $50.00 per share. The success of the organization was further strengthened by sale of $100,000 of preferred stock to the farmers and businessmen of Franklin County. The Ross Milling Company was purchased on June 1, 1950; and was soon re-opened as the Ottawa Cooperative Association. After their initial investment, there was cash on hand of less than $5,000 to purchase inventory. The first year was considered a success because they handled over 175,000 bushels of wheat, which was far above their expectations. During their second year of operation, the profits of the first year were wiped out by a $20,000 loss from the 1951 flood. Since the BIG 1951 FLOOD the cooperative has had a steady growth, and now boasts a membership of 1,405, and 29 employees with salaries totaling $124,000. The assets are valued at $910,000. The cooperative paid local taxes of over $13,000 last year, which makes it one of the LARGEST tax-paying businesses in Ottawa. Last year sales of the organization were $240,000. This was made possible by meeting the specific needs of the farmers, and by carrying a large inventory of approximately $173,000. This is quite an increase over their starting inventory of 1950. Last year the cooperative handled over a million bushels of grain, which was a considerable increase over the previous years. The growth of cooperatives in the world today is attributed to the following principles recognized and used by the first cooperative store in Rochdale, England in 1844. Open Membership One Member One Vole Limited Interest on Shares Patronage Refund on Purchases Sell for Cash at Market Prices Neutrality . . . Race, Religion, Politics Educate Constantly Expand Continuously John Satterfield, president of the American Bar Association, says, "A cooperative is one of the most powerful tools the farmer may use to free himself of economic pressures, and cooperatives form a necessary barrier to the flowing tide of government domination and possible elimination of free enterprise."
