We're on a cost-cutting mission. In October 2004, a group of business men and women decided to do something about the rising costs associated with logging and farming. The plan was simple. By forming a cooperative and gaining new members, as a group they would be able to negotiate better prices. Founded on the premise of value for its members, the SLC set out to give loggers, truckers, farmers and ranchers a helping hand-real bargaining power to meet the challenges in today's market.
