Equity Lomira & Ballweg Team to Donate Tractors
The Lomira market of Equity Cooperative Livestock Sales Association and Ballweg Implement Co., Inc., are teaming to donate a John Deere children's pedal tractor for 10 upcoming county fairs, as well as the Alto Community Fair. Equity and Ballweg are happy to partner to further support our agriculture heritage within so many communities.


A Good Way To Grow
In 12 months, over $87,000 has been allocated for Equity's A Good Way To Grow project that is going to benefit 4-H and FFA programs in our trade area. This means over 870,000 animals have come through our auction barns and 10¢ from each head has been deducted on Equity's end for our contribution to youth in agriculture. The collaborative efforts of our patrons have made this a cooperative success!

DTN Weather Summary
Rain Friday in SE Plains, N.Midwest
Bryce Anderson (Bio) – DTN Meteorologist

Light to moderate rain is in store for the southeastern Plains through northern Midwest Friday. Other primary U.S. and Canadian Prairies crop regions will have a drier trend. Drier conditions in western Midwest will allow for some water receding after flash flooding this week. We will see a renewed round of moderate to heavy rain during the Labor Day weekend in the Midwest and Delta, causing some harvest delays in southern areas along with bringing a new round of wet conditions to some saturated areas. Temperatures remain cool north and very warm to hot south. » More DTN Weather Commentary
