In case you haven’t heard, the USDA announced its annual ranking of the United States’ largest cooperatives this week. For the second year running, Land O’Lakes, Inc. rounds out the top three. The release coincides with national Co-op Month celebrated this–and every October–for more than 50 years.
We’ve been working cooperatively since our founding in 1921, when 320 dairy farmers met in St. Paul, Minnesota, to form the Minnesota Cooperative Creameries Association, now Land O’Lakes. So, you bet we’re all about Co-op Month.
Whether you’re part of Winfield US, Purina or Dairy Foods, or corporate teams, we hope you’ll take time this October to shout out your pride for the home team: Land O’Lakes, Inc.
Through the month of October, we’re sharing stories about our co-op on the Land O'Lakes, Inc. social media pages. From our end-to-end viewpoint and member-owners, to the teams, people and our brands, there's a lot to share with the world. If you find a story particularly interesting, we encourage you to share it with your networks. Or, if you’re more into video, Co-op Pride is particularly relevant this month.
Head to Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn to give us a like, share and follow as we celebrate what it means to be Land O’Lakes this October.
