It is understood the 76-year-old fell into a piece of cattle feeding equipment on Friday night.
Emergency services were called to the scene on the Killybracken Road shortly after 8.30pm.
Police and Fire Service personnel are currently investigating and the Health and Safety Executive is due to start an investigation into the accident.
Mr McCooey had seven children and had farmed for most of his life.
Maurice Morrow, MLA for Fermanagh & South Tyrone said the whole community is devastated.
"We're shocked. My phone has not stopped ringing from the farming community, the business community in Dungannon and my colleagues here in Dungannon Council and I would just like to say from the outset that I would like to extend my sympathy," he said.
"It is difficult to imagine what they are going through at the moment but I want them to know that the whole community are with them and we are all saddened by this awful tragedy here today."
This is the 24th farming death in Northern Ireland in just over 20 months.
"It's a great sadness over the industry this morning again," Harry Sinclair, president of the Ulster Farmers' Union, said.
"The whole industry are thinking of the family and our sympathies extend to the family as we hear yet again of another accident on a farm.
"It has been a very disappointing time over the last couple of years, it's been a very sad time. We've had 23 or 24 deaths now over this last same number of months and that's the reason we've set up the farm safety partnership which involves the Health and Safety Executive, DARD, ourselves and NFU Mutual and young farmers' clubs.
"We're going out to highlight the whole farm safety message."
Last month Ulster Rugby star Nevin Spence, 22, his father Noel, 58, and brother Graham, 30, died in a slurry pit accident at their family farm in Hillsborough.
Nevin and Graham's sister, Emma Spence, was also involved in the incident. She survived after she was taken to hospital for treatment.
