MaxYield Decreases Cost of Palo Alto County 4-H Membership

MaxYield - Palo Alto County 4-H

MaxYield’s Scott Shirk presents Julie Naig, Palo Alto County Extension & Outreach county youth coordinator with a contribution to decrease the cost of 4-H in the county.

MaxYield Cooperative announced that they are continuing their commitment to Palo Alto 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 order 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 over $1600 to Palo Alto County Extension and annually contributes more than $15,000 across six counties in Iowa in support of 4-H.

“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 northern Iowa, southern Minnesota and eastern Michigan. Founded in 1915, MaxYield Cooperative is headquartered in West Bend, Iowa. More information about the cooperative can be found online at
