It’s co-op month. During the month of October many South Dakotans reflect on the century-old cooperative business model and say it is as relevant today as ever.
If you want to learn about cooperatives and their role in South Dakota, South Dakota Farmers Union President Doug Sombke says there’s one person to talk to.
“Hal Clemensen. No doubt in my mind, you know Hal is just a wealth of information, he grew up with it, like I did. His dad was a strong, strong believer in cooperatives, which Hal is too. If you wanted to visit with anybody, that’s the man,” Sombke says.
