Clay County ISU Extension Awarded Funds from Alceco
The Iowa State University Extension and Outreach – Clay County 4-H was recently awarded matching grants from Alceco, a farmer-owned cooperative, and the Land O’Lakes Foundation.
The organization was awarded a total of $500 which will be used toward the purchase of a new livestock retinal imager, to be used for livestock identification of animals going to the Iowa State Fair.
Albert City Elevator, A Cooperative (Alceco), dates back to 1925. The original Farmers Elevator Company was created as a stock company in 1905 and reorganized as a cooperative 20 years later. Today, Alceco continues to thrive as the farmer-owned cooperative partner of Ag Partners, L.L.C. The Land O’ Lakes Foundation match program matches dollar-for-dollar the cash donation of member cooperatives. For more information on Alceco, visit www.alceco.com.
