MaxYield Cooperative Contributes Funds towards Dickinson County 4-H Membership Dues

Hannah Brockshus, Dickinson County Extension youth coordinator, recently accepted a contribution from MaxYield Cooperative that will decrease the cost of 4-H for members in the county.

MaxYield Cooperative recently contributed $1330 towards the membership dues for Dickinson County 4-H members. The check was presented to Hannah Brockshus, county youth coordinator, on September 6th. The funds will pay $10 of the $35 state dues for 4-H members in the county. This membership not only allows students to showcase and compete with their projects at the Dickinson County Fair and Iowa State Fair, it also provides them with opportunities to participate in conferences, workshops, and community service.

“We are thrilled to continue our support of local 4-H,” said Chad Meyer, MaxYield client relations/communications leader. “We want to make 4-H an affordable youth program for local families, especially families that have multiple children enrolled. Also, by paying a portion of each 4-H member’s enrollment fee, we are able to continue our mission of supporting 4-H so that each member benefits.”

The cooperative contributes nearly $13,000 to 4-H in seven Iowa counties annually.

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