Continuing the program that was launched in 2013, Tennessee Farmers Cooperative and the Tennessee Cattlemen’s Association (TCA) will partner to offer livestock-related prizes to TCA members who recruit a new TCA member in 2015.  These prizes are valued at up to $4,500.   Successful TCA recruiters will be entered into a drawing for his or her choice of the following equipment:  Apache Feeder w/creeps, Priefert squeeze chute, W-W sweep system, 300-gallon Ag Spray pasture sprayer, Tru-Test scale system with a Co-op alley package, or Gallagher/Miraco fence/waterer package. The winning name will be drawn from all eligible entries and announced in February at the 2016 TCA Convention Awards Luncheon at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Murfreesboro.

In addition, one new member selected at random will win an expense-paid trip to the 2016 TCA convention, including a two-night stay at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Murfreesboro. Total value of the trip is up to $500.   To be eligible for the drawing, the person joining TCA must be defined as a new member (not a member at any point in 2014) and must have joined the association in 2015.  For recruiters, his or her name must be listed on the membership application when it is sent in to TCA with payment. Recruiters’ names will be entered as many times as they recruit a new member.

Founded in 1985, the Tennessee Cattlemen’s Association is made up of approximately 7,000 cattle producers and industry supporters from across the state.  Its mission is to provide Tennessee cattle producers with an organization that protects their interests, solves cattle industry problems, and builds “goodwill.”   TCA membership is just $30 a year and includes a monthly subscription to the award-winning Tennessee Cattle Business magazine, discounts on Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) trainings, and invitations to area meetings and other events.   For more information and complete promotion rules, visit or contact Charles Hord at 615-896-2333
