McDougal Livestock Loan Fund - 4-H & FFA


This memorial livestock project loan fund has been established for 4-H, FFA and Grange members in Solano County in the name of Mr. Harvey A. McDougal.  He was in the livestock business for more than 40 years, 30 of them in the Rio Vista area.  For more than 18 years, he operated a large cattle feedlot in Collinsville.

Mr. McDougal was always interested in helping youth and supported them and their projects at local, county and state levels.  For this support he was named “Friend of 4-H’ at the Junior Grand National Livestock Show at the Cow Palace.

Harvey gave unselfishly of his time and money to those who wanted to serve the agricultural needs of our country.  He served on more boards and committees (at his own expense), than there is space here to record.  We think it is fitting that a memorial in Harvey’s name is dedicated and used to continue the work he cherished.

Those organizations or individuals wishing to contribute may make their checks payable to The McDougal Livestock Loan Fund and send the contribution c/o Kelly Fletcher, 7694 Robben Road, Dixon, CA  95620.
