IAS Donates $2,500 to Ag Outreach Center

May 20, 2022


Community is important to IAS. Investing in the future of agriculture and our young people's learning opportunities is such a priority to our cooperative. 

That's why we invested in the Together We Build: Jackson Co. Fair & Extension/4-H Outreach Center. IAS donated $2,500 to the new building being built in the coming months on the fairgrounds in Maquoketa.

The outreach center will benefit the community by strengthening families and providing educational/training programs focusing on health, nutrition, STEM and agriculture.

IAS is proud to support this project. Congrats Jackson County and the surrounding communities!
