Volume 2, Number 1

Greetings from the New Year, and I hope you had a great time with friends and family, laughing, visiting, and sharing of yourselves during this Christmas past.

Reach meetings will be held soon in a market near you to tell you about this exciting new program Land O'Lakes, Inc. has put together for 2007 marketing year. How many times have you as members told us that you didn’t like coupon redemption, vouchers to fill out and keep track of, rebate checks that were not timely, and too many programs to remember?. We’ve done away with many of these situations, and it is exciting to look at the Reach program and what it may mean to you and your cooperative. Look for your invitation to a local meeting, and be there to learn about this exciting new program.

I will be attending the Phoenix Expo, and information is just beginning to arrive with what the new look of Expo’s for 2007 will hold. St. Paul will not have an Expo this year, so I would strongly encourage you to attend Phoenix to make full use of many training events for employees and key feed personnel.
