Directors of the Kossuth County Agriculture & Motorsports Museum recently received a $5000 contribution from CoBank’s “Sharing Success” charitable contribution grant program. The grant matches an earlier contribution from MaxYield Cooperative.

“Throughout rural America, cooperatives like MaxYield are working not only to provide value to their members, but to improve the quality of life in their local communities,” said CoBank president and CEO Robert Engel. “We’re delighted to support this worthy cause.”

Volunteers for the Kossuth County Ag & Motorsports museum are raising funds to construct a nearly 16,000 square foot facility. The facility will hold a two level agriculture and motorsports museum, plus a conference room. It will also be home to Arlen Benschoter’s substantial working model train collection.

CoBank is a national cooperative bank serving industries across rural America. The bank provides loans, leases, export financing and other financial services to agribusinesses and rural power, water and communications providers in all 50 states. CoBank is a member of the Farm Credit System, a nationwide network of banks and retail lending associations chartered to support the borrowing needs of U.S. agriculture and the nation’s rural economy.
