The fire at our Dry Fertilizer Facility in Hastings, NE last night is nothing short of a tragedy.  The events of the evening are still under investigation, so no further information is available at this time. “I am very thankful and humbled by all of the outpouring of support we have received from the community of Hastings as well as the leaders of various Nebraska Cooperatives throughout the state. Their concern alone has given me more confidence in the future of the cooperative system,” says Allan Zumpfe, CEO. “We will rebuild this great facility and asset to our company.”
