The Aurora Cooperative, a leading grain marketer and agricultural supplier based in Nebraska and serving America’s farmers in multiple states, announced finalization of its Aurora Agronomy expansion in Colorado with the acquisition of Tri County Ag, located in Wray and Paoli, Colo.

The Colorado multi-site expansion was previously owned and operated by Kris and Laurie Jones and headquartered at Wray, Colo. The sites will continue to operate under the Tri County Ag brand, with the Jones’ family continuing to lead operations at the facilities, and assist in the expansion of Aurora Ag Aviation; a sub-division of Aurora Agronomy®.

Tri County Ag is a full-service agronomy business, featuring aerial and ground application, scouting services, and crop protection and fertilizer sales. Construction of a two million gallon liquid fertilizer terminal has begun at the Wray site, and will be operational for the upcoming crop year.

“The vision of the Aurora Cooperative is to be financially strong, innovative, independent and a farmer-owned agri-business…now, and for the next generation. We are committed to delivering the finest products, service, and expertise to all farmer-owners in our expanding market area,” said George Hohwieler, president and CEO of the Aurora Cooperative.

“Within this expansion, Aurora’s ground and aerial agronomy capabilities are further enhanced. Equally important is selecting businesses that share Aurora’s culture and vision,” Hohwieler said. “Kris and Laurie share our approach of building long-term relationships with our farmer-owners. Aurora’s continued growth will be built upon these time-honored principles.”
