You pay more in the long run when you buy; and receive less in the long run when you sell. You help contribute to higher prices for products you must buy to operate your farm You keep your own cooperative from being as effective as it can be in increasing your net income. You detract from efforts being made by your neighbors who buy and sell co-op all the way. You help pay the fees for anti-cooperative lobbyists who work to influence state legislation and national legislation. REMEMBER: When you buy or sell anything related to farming or ranching, you vote for or against cooperatives. Vote IS FOR Cooperatives. Patronize cooperatives in your area. Work in them and through them to help increase your net income. OTTOSEN CO-OP ELEVATOR Jerry Hoffman, Mgr. WEST BEND ELEVATOR CO R. W. Jurgens, Mgr. TITONKA CO-OP ELEVATOR Jack Stott, Mgr.
