PDPW recognizes Compeer Financial as the first Vision Sponsor

Compeer Financial, formerly 1st Farm Credit Services, AgStar Financial Services and Badgerland Financial, is pleased to announce the cooperative has renewed their commitment to be a champion for the dairy industry as the first Vision Partner of the Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin (PDPW).

“Compeer Financial’s preceding organizations have been long-time PDPW partners, supporting the mission and commitment to lifelong learning for the dairy industry,” said Roger Swigart, Vice President of Core Markets at Compeer Financial and former PDPW advisor.

“Dairy, like any industry, goes through cycles that challenge even the best leaders. Compeer Financial is committed to partnering with PDPW and other agriculture organizations to help farmers manage through adversity, position them for success, and capitalize on opportunities,” Swigart added.

“A Vision Sponsor embodies a steadfast confidence in the future and legacy of dairy’s professional development organization.  They lead with a servant purpose and believe in the success of fellow dairy farmers, the importance of strategic relationships, and the need for an advanced dairy infrastructure, while all led by fellow dairy farmers,” stated Shelly Mayer, PDPW Executive Director.

“I applaud Compeer Financial’s commitment to serve our nation’s dairy farmers.  Their investment allows PDPW to continue to lead through education,” said Marty Hallock, PDPW Board President and Mondovi, Wis. farmer.
