North Central Iowa Ag in the Classroom

(L to R) MaxYield’s Norma Krogman presents a matching funds contribution from Land O’Lakes Foundation to Leah Reinert and Lind Anderegg, program coordinators for North Central Iowa Ag in the Classroom.

MaxYield Cooperative recently presented matching funds from Land O’Lakes Foundation in support of North Central Iowa Ag in the Classroom. This program educates children in six North Iowa counties about the importance of agriculture.

The contribution provided by Land O’Lakes Foundation matches an earlier contribution made by MaxYield to the organization.

North Central Iowa Ag in the Classroom was formed in 1998, by the efforts of Farm Bureau organizations in Cerro Gordo, Franklin, Hancock, Winnebago and Worth counties. Kossuth County Farm Bureau became involved in 2008.

The program offers a variety of agriculture based programs and lessons to nearly 7,000 students in more than 20 school districts. More information about the curriculum can be found at www.agintheclassroom.org.

MaxYield Cooperative is a local farmer owned agricultural cooperative that has 18 locations in Iowa and one in Riga, Michigan. They are headquartered in West Bend, Iowa and annually support programs that educate students and youth about agriculture.
