Two state cattlemen groups have recruited their way to the free use of some New Holland equipment over the next year. The Missouri Cattlemen’s Association and the Alabama Cattlemen’s Association each earned use of their choice of a one-year lease on a New Holland Roll-Belt™ 560 Specialty Crop round baler or a one-year lease on a New Holland T6 175 tractor for their outstanding efforts to recruit new members to the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. The prizes were handed out during the recent 2015 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show in San Antonio, Texas.
Recruiting 243 new members, the Missouri Cattlemen’s Association automatically earned one of these leases for the most recruits for the contest period, which lasted from Oct. 1, 2014 to Dec. 31, 2014.
“New Holland is proud to support state and national membership efforts in cattle industry organizations,” said Michael Cornman, Dairy & Livestock Marketing Segment Manager for New Holland North America. “We know that it takes all of us working together to keep the cattle industry strong and viable for future generations of farmers and ranchers, and are honored to work with NCBA and its state partners on this important campaign to build a strong voice for beef producers in the United States.”
The Alabama Cattlemen’s Association was the winner of the drawing of 19 qualifying affiliates.
