Till Hired As Equity’s Iowa Market Manager

Equity Cooperative Livestock Sales Association announced the hire of Mike Till as Market Manager at the new Maquoketa facility. With an impressive background in business management and livestock operations, Till will be integral in the opening of the new market.

He joins Equity with more than 10 years of experience in business and agriculture management, having
previously held a management position at Redwood Logistics and running his own farming operation.

“We are thrilled to welcome Mike Till as our Maquoketa Market Manager,” said Mark Clarke, Executive Vice President of Marketing and COO. “His deep agriculture roots in the area combined with his past employment experiences will bring strong value to Equity’s new market. Mike will be an asset to our cooperative as we continue to provide top quality services to livestock producers.”

In this role, Till will oversee the Maquoketa market operations and staff, as well as maintain relationships
with producers, truckers, buyers and community members. He will work with member-owners to
understand and meet their livestock marketing needs.

“I take pride in the area’s richness in agriculture and look forward to providing market opportunities for
cattle producers through this region,” stated Till. “I enjoy visiting with other livestock producers and
learning about how they manage and grow their operations.”

Along with his wife, Kaitlin, Till is raising his three children on their cow/calf operation just outside of Andrew, Iowa. Till holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration with an emphasis in management and marketing from Clarke University.

Equity looks forward to the valuable contributions Till will make to the team as they grow and expand their services into eastern Iowa.
