With a chance to win a special weekend for two at the Calgary Stampede, we were not surprised to see we had almost 1,700 entries for the Going to Grass Contest that included two night's accommodation as well as tickets to the Rodeo Semi-Finals, GMC Rangeland Derby and Evening Show. Many people also took advantage of the special promo code in the UFA Going to Grass Guide that brought our total entries up to 3,500.
Brad Brenchley from Big Valley, Alta. was the lucky winner and was very thankful he took the time to enter the contest online. Entrants had an opportunity to visit our Going to Grass webpage to enter or fill out a ballot at one of our 35 Farm & Ranch Supply stores across the province.
When UFA Livestock Customer Account Manager, Joan Coleman phoned to give Brad the good news, he stated “I am a huge rodeo fan; this is a great prize and I looking forward to spending a couple days in Calgary at the Stampede.” He, in fact, had just returned from five days at the Ponoka Stampede before collecting his prize at the Stettler UFA.
We would like to thank all of our customer/members who entered this contest. Please watch for our upcoming Bringing them Home campaign this fall.
