Dalhart Consumers Fuel Association Inc.

Dalhart Consumers is owned by its members and is democratically controlled by those members (one member, one vote).

At the end of the fiscal year, profits are returned to the members in proportion to the amount of business they did with the cooperative during that year. A portion of the profits are returned in cash, with the remainder being retained by the cooperative as members' equity, for expanding facilities or services, etc.

Members' equity is earmarked for each member in an equity account and is paid back as funds allow.

By working together in a cooperative structure, members can purchase quality goods and services at competitive prices and also market their crops competitively. When you become a member, the cooperative essentially becomes your business, working for you. In many cases, your cooperative provides goods and services that may not be available otherwise.

The Board of Directors is comprised of members who have been elected by their fellow members to set policies and long range goals for the cooperative on behalf of the membership. They hire the General Manager who is responsible for day-to-day operations of the co-op.

Dalhart Consumers was founded in 1933 and began by handling coal, salt and blinder twine, with the first year's sales totaling $22,000.00. The next year a fuel truck was added and in 1935 Dalhart Consumers entered the grain business by purchasing Dalhart Grain Company.

Today the Coop records annual sales of $45,000,000.00. During the past 68 years, Dalhart Consumers has paid back $7 million in patronage dividends. The company is finacially strong and stable with total assets in excess of $15 million. People who believe in working together to help themselves have made this cooperative what it is today.
