PDPW Sponsor Highlight in Managers Memo
For LANDMARK SERVICES COOPERATIVE (LSC), choosing to partner with PDPW is an easy decision. The producer-led vision matched with the best-in-class experiences PDPW offers aligns with the cooperative model of LSC – and that’s why we’re a proud sponsor of the organization.
Ryan White of Kinnamon Ridge Dairy LLC in Reedsburg, Wis., an LSC patron and PDPW member, shared his thoughts about cooperatives partnering with PDPW. “By working with a cooperative that is a sponsor of PDPW, you can earn more than just a patronage check – you can earn opportunities for knowledge. We’re glad that doing business with LSC is supporting our ability to invest in ourselves.”
Of his PDPW experiences so far, he said his best experience has been attending Financial Literacy for Dairy®, a program designed to teach producers to better understand balance sheets and budgets, what lenders are looking for in a dairy’s financial reports, and benchmarking one’s own farm against other farms. White has found this course valuable because he doesn’t have time to take a whole finance class. Through this course, he feels the necessary components of what he requires have been cherry-picked.
At Landmark Services Cooperative, we actively seek opportunities to build value for our members – now and for the future. This includes being an allied partner of PDPW. We are committed to the success of our dairy producers. Our team is ready to work across all facets of LSC: agronomy, grain, energy, retail and animal nutrition, because together we can bring a broader perspective and more unique offerings to our customer-members. Through operational efficiencies like our commodity facility that provides improved feed value to our members to our team of nutritionists that bring solutions for income-over-feed cost, we are committed to providing value to the diversity of today’s dairy farming business.
We are pleased to work with an organization that mutually strives to provide education, cutting-edge solutions and a path for success for our members.
