NEW TOWN, N.D. (AP) - Members of United Prairie Cooperative of New Town and Dakota Quality Grain Cooperative of Parshall recently voted to consolidate.

The new company will begin operations as United Quality Cooperative next April, providing services and products for the grain and energy industries.

United Prairie CEO and General Manager John Reese says the two co-ops share a bulk fuel partnership and have overlapping trade territories, and it made sense to combine.

The new United Quality co-op will have more than 6,000 patrons and 170 employees. Reese and Dakota Quality Grain General Manager Daryl Stevens both are retiring, and the search is underway for a CEO for the new co-op.
