Here’s our newest video that discusses the different types of Cooperatives.
The link below tells a story about a successful producers co-op in a rural Oregon community. Members are able to get access to various local food products and other items at a discounted rate. The co-op was also able to open up their own market, where members can sell their products to the public.
Note the great impact this cooperative had on the community, as well as each individual member!
Are you a hunter? Landowner? Wild-life enthusiast? Read this neat article on Deer Co-ops in Oklahoma. Learn about how collaboration with other landowners can generate better game for hunters. This co-op is cool because it’s just an organization that takes very little effort to form, yet yields great results.
This story also echos the general formula of cooperatives (problem/need + Cooperation = better products/ services for members). In this case the problem would be lack of fully grown bucks, and the solution would be a higher population of fully grown bucks. (Duh!)
