WEST BEND, IOWA, January 6 – MaxYield Cooperative recently made a contribution of $1000 to the Kossuth Saddle Club. The check, presented to club president James Rotert and his daughter Kara on January 6th, will assist the club in purchasing a used tractor and new arena rake. The new equipment will be used to maintain and improve the riding surface at the club’s arena, increasing safety for riders and their animals.

“We are thrilled with the support we received from the county so far and from this donation by MaxYield,” said Rotert. “With more events being held at the saddle club arena and the increased number of riders, upgrading our ground preparation equipment is important. Better footing for horses will improve the animal and rider’s safety and with this contribution we’re another step closer to making it happen.”

“MaxYield is happy to help the Kossuth Saddle Club with this donation that will provide needed upgrades for maintaining the arena on the fairgrounds. Several of our members and clients participate in the activities the club puts on and the arena is used by several 4-H’ers in our area, too,” said Chad Meyer, Client Relations/Communications Leader at MaxYield.
