MSGA will be in Billings for the Northern International Livestock Exposition at the MetraPark, Oct. 10-17. The Ford F-150 truck that we will be giving away to one lucky member at our Annual Convention, Dec. 10-12 at the Metra, will be featured in the NILE Ranch Rodeo on Oct. 10. The truck will also be at MSGA’s booth in the Expo Center, Oct. 12-17. Ariel and Rose will be manning the booth so be sure to stop in and say hello! At the booth, you can enter to win the truck and buy raffle tickets for a chance to win tickets and hotel for two to the 2009 NFR, for three days and three nights, plus $500 traveling money! The winner will be drawn Oct. 17, and you don’t have to be present to win. We’ll also be selling raffle tickets for a two-day getaway to the Wilderness Edge Resort in Ennis. The winner will be drawn at our Annual Convention in December. If you haven’t ordered your copy of “The Weak Ones Turned Back, The Cowards Never Started: A Century of Ranching in Montana,” edited by Linda Grosskopf and Nancy Morrison, you can do that at the booth too. You can also take a look at our latest newsletter and pick up a Montana Seedstock and Commercial Cattle Directory. If you’re not a member, visit us and find out why you should be member! Also be sure to check out the Merit Heifer show, Oct. 15-16, which we’re sponsoring! For more information about the NILE and its events, check out the NILE’s website.
