dc.description.abstract Grower cooperatives and quasi-cooperative producer associations have a long tradition of using group action to establish or improve quality standards and to promote product uniformity for their crops and livestock. These efforts have often been key to creating new domestic and international markets. Such endeavors often include working closely with state and federal government agencies. A recent example of this can be seen in northeast Oregon, where hay growers formed the Wallowa County Hay Growers Association in 2003 to tap into an expanding market for weed-free and premium forage products. In addition to improving market opportunities for its members, the hay association may also yield environmental benefits by helping to reduce the spread of noxious weeds on public and private lands. en_US
