Being a cooperative means working together for the common good. Whether we’re feeding animals, crops or people, we take this belief to heart.

What we're doing

FOR TODAY—AND TOMORROW

Building strong communities, creating enduring livelihoods and being effective stewards of our natural resources—these commitments are as important to us as top-quality products and services. The long view is part of our DNA. We’re working in communities around the globe to grow more food with less, foster new ideas and talent, and preserve our communities and the planet for future generations.

We all depend on strong communities. That’s why we donate two percent or more of our pretax profits to the Land O’Lakes Foundation. With these funds and the help of volunteer efforts, we strive to fight hunger, support education and strengthen communities. Through programs like our Member Co-op Match, Matching Gifts to Education and annual United Way campaign, we’re fulfilling the Foundation’s mission to serve the many communities where our members and employees live and work.

With nearly a century of experience under our belts, we know a thing or two about farming. Since 1981, we’ve shared this expertise through Land O'Lakes International Development projects. We’ve helped build economies and communities around the world by supporting local agriculture and celebrating self-sufficiency. Along the way, we’ve transformed the lives of more than 3 million people through 280 programs and trainings in 80 countries.

Since we formed our cooperative in 1921, conserving land, water and air has been important to us. We proudly continue our commitment to sustainable operations in our manufacturing and office locations and on-farm sustainability initiatives. We also work with public and private partners to address everything from water quality and soil conservation to pollinator health.
