AM A new program introduced by Land O’Lakes, Inc. will allow universities to help create a better quality of life through the donation of a dairy cow to families in Africa. Shown is Mary Batson of Malawi, a recipient of one of the cattle. It will provide enough sustainable income for the family to send their children to school, get health care and meet their basic needs of food, clothing and shelter. Land O’Lakes Dairy Solutions will provide a donation toward the purchase of a cow on behalf of each participat- ing university for every pound of item purchased from Land O’Lakes’ Foodservice unit. The 4-H emblem was prominently displayed on the No. 24 car driven by Jeff Gordon (shown above) in a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at the Kansas City Speedway on October 4, kicking off National 4-H Week. The placement of the 4-H clover was made possible through a donation by DuPont, sponsor of both the No. 24 team and a supporter of the National 4-H Council.
