Land O'Lakes awards United Co-op

United Cooperative, located at Beaver Dam, Wisconsin (USA) recently received Land O'Lakes Purina Feed's "Dedication to Quality" award for meeting or exceeding the national feed manufacturer's safety and quality standards.

"The United Cooperative feed division always works very hard at maintaining a high level of quality with our products and services," said John Scheuers, United Cooperative vice president of feed operations.
United Cooperative is a feed licensed manufacturer (FLM) of Land O'Lakes Purina Feed branded feed, which it then markets and sells to its own retail customers in the local trade area.
The FLM earns the "Dedication to Quality" award by meeting or exceeding FLM program feed safety, feed quality, and feed regulatory requirements and standards.
"As a part of the FLM program, the local feed license manufacturing cooperative location has the opportunity to earn the program's annual 'Dedication to Quality' award by meeting or exceeding the FLM program requirements," said Steve Smart, Land O'Lakes Purina Feed FLM program manager.
"Some of the requirements even exceed FDA standards. We're very proud of the great work and commitment our FLMs have to producing the best in animal nutrition."
Land O'Lakes Purina Feed is a national organization serving producers and their families through 4,700 local cooperatives and dealerships.
Formed in 1936, United Cooperative is a full-service cooperative offering feed, grain, agronomy, and energy products and services to south-central Wisconsin farmers and consumers.
