Ag co-ops across the nation had a record $246 billion in sales last year, a 4% gain over 2012, according to a report released last month by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

It was the third straight annual increase, reflecting the strength of agriculture overall.

The sales total includes farms, ranches and fishing ventures that sell their products through co-ops, along with co-ops that provide goods and services, such as seed and fertilizer, to these producers.
