It’s North Dakota Rodeo Association Finals time and North Dakota Farm Bureau is a sponsor of the event, broadcast on the Bek Sports Network. Part of our sponsorship includes interviews and a commercial. We had the camera crew in our office yesterday to interview Joey Tigges, NDFB’s Leadership Development Director, Monte Pfenning of Puklich Chevrolet in Bismarck and Steve Pletan of Action Motor Sports in Mandan.
Why Monte and Steve? Because they work for businesses that provide NDFB members GREAT benefits on GM and Polaris vehicles, respectively. We hope that by providing them a little air time, more Farm Bureau members will realize they have an opportunity to save a lot of money. Polaris and GM also play a role in our Young Farmers and Ranchers program, through the Discussion Meet, which Joey talked about during her part of the interview. (The state Discussion Meet winner receives a Polaris 4-wheeler and the national winner gets a GM truck!)
We also have a 30-second commercial that features members from around the state sharing why they belong. These were taken from interviews my coworker Lisa and I did over the last few years. A HUGE thank you to Courtney, Trevor, Corey and Darryl for your awesome comments about Farm Bureau. The ad is embedded below:
