MCDC is happy to present a collection of excellent cooperative model resources and publications. This collection comes from several federal and state funded sites and agencies (i.e. U.S. Department of Agriculture) and other sites accessible to the public. We have provided the url address of each site where the resource was found. In addition, when permitted MCDC downloaded these resources to our web page in case a url address changes and the resource is no long available at that address. Please note that each state has its own statutes or laws that define cooperatives for that state. It is important to everyone using these resources to research the state laws where the cooperative is located or contact us.
