About PRO Co-op

The PRO in our name means different things to different people, and that’s okay with us.

What’s in a name?

The PRO Co-op name originally came about when three smaller Montana cooperatives merged to become the Peerless, Richland and Opheim Co-op in 1989. As additional locations and services were added, the name was shortened to “PRO” Co-op. The word pro itself also reflects the type of customers we serve—professional, progressive farmers who raise specialized, non-traditional crops in a challenging part of the country. You could also say we are pro cooperative, a business model that helps keep money you spend circulating right here, in northeastern Montana. Finally, we are very much pro community, bringing jobs, products and services to our small towns, and giving back in ways large and small.

Our History

PRO Co-op is the combination of seven original cooperatives in northeast Montana. In 1987, Farmers Union Oil of Peerless and Farmers Union Oil of Opheim merged. In 1989, Richland Farm Supply was acquired and the name Peerless, Richland, Opheim Co-op was introduced. Elevators in Peerless and Opheim were purchased in 2005, followed by the Four Buttes elevator in 2009. 

Then in 2014, the original PRO Co-op merged with Grain Growers Oil Company of Scobey and Flaxville. Grain Growers of Scobey was originally established in 1928, and acquired Flaxville Farmers Union Oil in 1995. PRO Co-op maintains a store and/or elevator in each of these towns, providing services and products to our loyal patrons across northeastern Montana.
 

Giving Back to Our Communities

Being generous with our time and money is something we take seriously at PRO Co-op. You’ll find our employees working in every community we serve, volunteering as coaches, committee members, fire fighters and EMTs.

We give money to projects that make life better for everyone here in northeastern Montana, including the swimming pool and movie theatre in Scobey, as well as the new pool in Glasgow. We often get matching grants for these gifts from our cooperative partners at Land O’Lakes and CHS. And we’re always willing to listen to funding requests from our communities; if there’s one you’d like to talk about, please contact Tanner Trower in Scobey.

Our spring pancake breakfast, and our cooperative’s annual meeting in the fall, are opportunities for friends, neighbors and customers from the community to enjoy a little time together
