CO-OP If you need feed, fertilizer, gas or any other farm supplies, the Quad County CO-OP would be more than happy to serve you. Since 1919, fifty-eight years ago, the CO-OP has been growing in business and will continue to grow in the future. About half of the people from Barneveld come to do business at the CO-OP and about the same from other areas. The CO-OP, even though it is in such a small town, hasn't lost any business. People from all around the area come to buy products from the CO-OP. The CO-OP has many things to sell, but the most prosperous is feed and pet food accordin7 to money figures. "The drought as in any other business hurt the CO-OP in selling their goods," says Ken Vlasick who has been working at the CO-OP for two years. He is the manager with eight other employees. About two-tenths of the total budget is spont on advertising. So if you see an advertisement you know the Quad County CO-OP of Barneveld is hard at work.
