COLUMBUS, Ohio (OFBF) – The Ohio Farm Bureau Federation (OFBF) and the National Tractor Pullers Association (NTPA) are teaming up in a new partnership that includes discounts and promotions for OFBF members.
This partnership marks the first step toward working together to introduce Farm Bureau members to NTPA pulling and NTPA pulling fans to Farm Bureau.
Both organizations have a mutual history that makes the partnership a natural fit.
“The sport of pulling is firmly planted in the heart of Ohio, which was a founding state to the NTPA some 41 years ago,” said Gregg Randall, NTPA general manager. “We look forward to seeing all the Ohio Farm Bureau members come out to see the technology at work and horsepower generated by these pulling competition machines.”
Many Farm Bureau members have an interest in tractors as well as participating in good family fun. With many events in Ohio, and several of them included as part of county fairs, Farm Bureau has an opportunity to reach out to members and potential members. A significant aspect of this partnership will be the discounts for members on The Puller magazine, select event tickets and other NTPA merchandise at www.ntpapull.com.
“We are really excited about working with the NTPA,” said Seth Everitt, OFBF marketing communications specialist. “It’s an opportunity to partner with a great organization and promote the benefits of Farm Bureau membership to their fans.”
Event attendees can expect to see Ohio Farm Bureau banners at more than 20 statewide events, and Farm Bureau members will enjoy special Web promotions, discounts on tickets for the Enderle Pull-Off in Urbana, Sept. 18, 2010 and on NTPA Web Mall items.
Ohio Farm Bureau is a 235,064-member organization working on legislation, regulations and issues affecting agriculture, rural areas and Ohio citizens in general. Members include farmers, food and wine fans, gardeners, outdoor enthusiasts and anyone who enjoys rural Ohio. For more information, or to join, visit www.GrowWithFB.org.
