Columbus, Ohio. — United Producers, Inc. (UPI), the Midwest’s largest livestock marketing cooperative, is excited to announce that it has purchased a new livestock facility, the United Producers Livestock Center, located at 1380 Highway 1401 in Harned, Ky. The facility will host weekly livestock auctions and will accommodate special sales and other industry related events. The date for the first sale will be announced in the coming weeks.

 

UPI is investing in this new facility as a demonstration of its strong commitment to the livestock producers in the region, while building on the success of its market in Irvington, Ky. The new facility is better equipped for safe handling and care of animals, underscoring the cooperative’s dedication to the well-being of its employees and the livestock in their care, ultimately creating value for both consignors and buyers. Additionally, the facility will allow for expanded opportunities to serve more producers and support the local community.

 

This multi-faceted facility, sitting on more than 13 acres, includes a 52,840 sq. ft. building with approximately 47,000 sq. ft. of pens under roof and 11,500 sq. ft. of outside pen space. It was designed for efficiency, ease of movement and proper care of the livestock, including easy water access for the animals. The facilities can comfortably host other agricultural and industry events/meetings.

 

“Our vision is not just to be a location for livestock auctions, but to be a focal point for the agricultural community in this area,” said Mike Bumgarner, president and CEO of UPI. “UPI values connectedness and collaboration within the agricultural communities that we serve. As a cooperative, our customers are members and are active in the governance of our organization, making us all stronger when we work together. We look forward to welcoming everyone, especially livestock producers and agricultural organizations, to the United Producers Livestock Center and introducing them to UPI’s values and services.”

 

UPI serves 30,000 members in Ohio, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri and Tennessee, handling approximately 2.5 million head of livestock per year.

When launching the redesigned site in April, we knew we would received valuable feedback from our members. This feedback about the site is helpful in making continued and necessary modifications to the site so we are able to provide the best possible information to you, our members.

Most of our feedback was in regards to the DTN page of the site, a summary of modifications are listed below.

1. Easier to read Futures Commodity Quotes

The background of each commodity box is now lighter, easier to read and all negative numbers appear in red.

 

 

 

 

 

2. Modified Options Section

We modified the Options section to collapse when not in use to cut down on scrolling. We also enabled a freezing header — when scrolling through the Options, the header will remain at the top of the page so you know what each column is labeled.

 

3. Weather Radar

Last, but certainly not least, we have brought back the weather radar. This was the most missed feature and we are happy to bring it back!
