FCS Financial, a member of the Farm Credit System, has pledged $25,000 to establish the FCS Financial – Missouri 4-H Animal Science Fund. The pledge supports the Missouri 4-H Foundation endowment initiative The Next Sixty Years, which focuses on providing permanent support for University of Missouri Extension 4-H state programs.
