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.
