MaxYield Cooperative Continues Support of Clay County 4-H

Clay County 4-H members continue to grow in strides thanks to MaxYield Cooperative’s generosity. Since 1999, Maxyield has been funding a portion of the membership fees for Clay County 4-H members.

                This year the donation MaxYield Cooperative contributed to Clay county 4-H members totaled over $2,500. “The best thing about this donation is that it directly goes to 4-H families and members providing a quality 4-H experience for members,” said Bonnie Dalager, ISU Extension Clay County Program Director.

“4-H is the cornerstone of early ag education and experiences that young people have. Supporting 4-H in the counties we do business in is important to us as it benefits all involved, 4-H and MaxYield,” explained Chad Meyer, Client Relations and Communications Team Leader at MaxYield Cooperative.

Clay County has 265 4-H members who actively participate in community service projects, develop leadership skills, and learn through hands on, personal growth projects. 4-H prepares youth to step up to challenges in their community and globally. Clay County 4-H Youth Council member Emily Elliott stated, “4-H has changed my life for the best and allows me to continue personal growth.” 4-H members receive real world experiences that allow them to become leaders.

MaxYield Cooperative is an agricultural cooperative serving members and clients in Iowa, Minnesota and Michigan.
