4-H Membership Cost Decreased in Emmet County

Britney Rosburg, program director (left) and Morgan Matthews, county youth coordinator, accept a contribution from MaxYield that will decrease the cost of 4-H enrollment in Emmet County.

MaxYield Cooperative announced recently that they are continuing their commitment to Emmet County 4-H members and clubs by decreasing the cost of enrollment in the youth program.

“We are continuing our support of local 4-H clubs and our commitment to 4-H,” said Chad Meyer, MaxYield Client Relations Director. “Recently, we presented a contribution for $10.00 per 4-H member in Emmet County to decrease the cost of 4-H membership.”

Meyer said the cooperative has two goals in providing the program. “First, we want to make 4-H an affordable youth program for local families. Secondly, by paying a portion of each 4-H member’s enrollment fee, we are able to continue our mission in supporting 4-H so that each member benefits.”

The cooperative contributed $1800 to Emmet County Extension.

“We believe that 4-H is one of the cornerstones in developing youth and 4-H provides an excellent foundation to build strong families in this area. 4-H also provides a great way for young people to learn more about agriculture and its exciting future,” commented Meyer.

MaxYield Cooperative is a local farmer-owned cooperative serving members and clients in Iowa, and southern Minnesota. Founded in 1915, MaxYield Cooperative is headquartered in West Bend, Iowa.

Britt Road Closure

MaxYield Cooperative offers our sincere apology to our members and clients who access our Britt location during harvest and are inconvenienced by this construction. This road closure caught us very much by surprise as we were not informed of this road closure until today, Monday, October 23, 2017.

We are working hard on a solution for grain deliveries during this very busy and critical time for local farmers. At the moment, specific details of exactly how traffic will flow through this area is very limited.

We will provide updates and MaxYield traffic flow signage for our members and clients as soon as possible.

For the public’s safety and for the safety of our farmers and team members, we ask the public to not drive through the MaxYield property and lots unless you need to stop by our office or deliver grain. We appreciate your understanding during this very busy time for farmers and our business.

For more information on how to access MaxYield during this road closure, please contact our Britt office at 641-843-3878.

We appreciate your patience as we work through solutions during this surprise road closure.

Bernie Becker, co-founder of Hunting with Heroes, recently accepted a contribution totaling $2500 from MaxYield Cooperative.

“Hunting with Heroes” provides a pheasant hunting weekend at the Becker farm near Lakota, IA to injured active-duty U.S. Marines from the Wounded Warrior Battalion at Camp Lejeune, NC.

The contribution from MaxYield Cooperative will pay the airfare to fly the Marines to Iowa for the event, which is held each November during Veteran’s Day weekend. The weekend concludes with a Veterans Appreciation Banquet Sunday, November 12, held at the Lakota Eagle Center.

“MaxYield has been involved with Hunting with Heroes since its inception and we continue to be a proud supporter of this event,” stated Chad Meyer, MaxYield client relations/communications leader. “The benefit Hunting with Heroes provides the soldiers who visit Iowa is amazing and humbling. Also, the recognition and appreciation our local veterans, spouses and widows receive during the banquet makes this event second-to-none.”
