FUI and Central Bi-Products Participate in 4-H Livestock Auctions

Redwood Falls, MN
July 2017

Farmers Union Industries (FUI) and Central Bi-Products once again look forward to supporting the 4-H efforts through local fair participation. This year FUI will be supporting both Brown and Redwood County 4-H programs as a premium auction livestock buyer. This has become a strong tradition for FUI as the company proudly supports the efforts of 4-H in helping America’s youth development by creating positive changes and as they strive to improve the world around us.

In the summer of 2016 Brown County 4-H program alone had 77 livestock youth bring their prized animals through the auction ring. At the 62nd Annual Livestock Premium auction, they were able to raise $24,000 to help support local 4-H youth. Central Bi-Products was able to purchase 4 of those animals.

With nearly 6 million members nation-wide, 4-H empowers young people with the skills to conduct reach-based experiences that include mentors, hands-on projects, financial responsibility, livestock care, business and meaningful leadership opportunities. Young people can get involved in 4-H through their school’s clubs or community programs. As an agriculture business leader in each of our communities, Farmers Union Industries and our divisions plan to continue and expand our involvement with the 4-H community.

Farmers Union Industries and Central Bi-Products will be participating in the 2017 county fair 4-H activities. Our organization will be bidding at the livestock auction at the Redwood County Fair July 12-16 in Redwood Falls, MN and the Brown County Fair August 9-13 in New Ulm, MN.
