"A GOOD WAY TO GROW" PROGRAM RAISES $87,000 FOR 4-H, FFA
Source: Equity Cooperative Livestock Sales Association news release

Equity Cooperative Livestock Sales Association's A Good Way To Grow program is now complete, recording $87,425 that is going to benefi t 4-H and FFA programs in our trade area.

The program began last July, when Equity Livestock committed to contributing 10 for every animal marketed for one year to support youth development and help increase resources and invest in positive involvement for youth.

"We are at the end of this program and results are so encouraging. Our livestock numbers continued to grow which refl ects our patrons' dedication over the last year.

These results allow us to continue our fi nancial support of these two great youth organizations that create a positive outcome for youth interested in agriculture," stated Chuck Adami, Equity's president and CEO. Adami added, "When patrons market livestock through Equity, we keep track of each animal sold.

The 10 isn't deducted from the producer's check; we subtract that amount from our bottom line and this is what goes to fund A Good Way To Grow. The collaborative efforts of our patrons have made this a cooperative success!"

The Baraboo-based Equity Cooperative operates 12 auction markets and services producers in Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. Equity assists producers with the marketing, managing and financing of their agricultural business.
