Farmers Union campers learn about agriculture careers and cooperation

A CENTRAL Electric Cooperative employee explains electricity and efficiency to youth attending Farmers Union/4-H Day Camp in Forestburg.

Forestburg – South Dakota Farmers Union and 4-H joined together for a day of learning and “Cooperating…For a Brighter Tomorrow.” 4-H youth educated on multiple topics including proper table settings, food measurements, photography, and other opportunities for 4-H projects.  Youth spent the day learning about the history of cooperatives and cooperative careers, the impact cooperatives have on our everyday life, and talking about where food comes from. Team challenges, games, songs and crafts made up the afternoon. 

The youth enjoyed learning about cooperatives through a co-op fair with Central Electric, Dakotaland Federal Credit Union, Agtegra, Dakotaland Feeds, National Information Systems Cooperative (NISC), and Santel Communications.  Lunch was sponsored in part by Woony Foods/AWG Cooperative, Farmers Elevator and Dakotaland Federal Credit Union.   The day was organized by Sanborn County Farmers Union Director Pat Carsrud, and Farmers Union Insurance provided a T-shirt to all attendees.
