Agricultural Organizations And Litigation

Rajkowski Hansmeier Ltd., is a well-recognized Upper Midwest regional law firm of choice for member-owned farm cooperatives and for entities doing business with them. These agricultural organizations, also known as "ag coops" or "farmers' co-ops," sell feed, fertilizer and propane while offering related services. We work most often with farmers' co-ops throughout Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota and South Dakota.

Farmers and farming businesses rely on ag coops for relevant advice on safe and proper use of fuels, seeds, crop nutrients and crop protection products. With millions of dollars of annual revenues and large numbers of full-time and seasonal employees, ag coops have a great deal at stake in ordinary times as well as in times of legal challenges such as when facing product liability lawsuits.
