Hesston by Massey Ferguson reestablishes PRCA sponsorship

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – Hesston® by Massey Ferguson® is going back to its roots by sponsoring the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (WNFR) in 2011 and plans to continue this sponsorship in the years to come. Hesston was a long-time supporter of the PRCA and WNFR, beginning in 1974, and now Hesston by Massey Ferguson is carrying on the tradition by becoming the official tractor and farm equipment company of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, with high visibility during the WNFR.

“We are proud to again be an official sponsor of this exciting event,” said Todd Stucke, director of hay and harvesting for Hesston by Massey Ferguson. “Just as rodeo and hay production have a shared heritage in the West, Hesston’s sponsorship of the PRCA and WNFR is an important part of our heritage that we wish to continue.”

The Wrangler NFR, held in Las Vegas from Dec. 1-10, is sanctioned by the PRCA, the largest and oldest rodeo-sanctioning body in the world and the recognized leader in professional rodeo.

“Lots of PRCA fans will remember that Hesston was the first sponsor of our NFR TV in 1974. It’s terrific to have an old friend like Hesston by Massey Ferguson return to the PRCA and WNFR as our newest sponsor,” said PRCA Commissioner Karl Stressman. “Agribusiness is an important part of our Western lifestyle culture and Hesston by Massey Ferguson is a valuable contributor as one of the biggest names in farm equipment throughout the world with a 150 year history. Hesston by Massey Ferguson is also a major supporter of the National FFA organization and the PRCA looks to leverage that relationship to promote ProRodeo to the more than 500,000 members of the FFA.”

As part of its sponsorship, Hesston by Massey Ferguson will be donating a Massey Ferguson tractor for charity auction at the 2011 Wrangler Gold Buckle Gala. The event scheduled for Nov. 28 at the South Point Hotel & Casino’s Grand Ballroom benefits the ProRodeo Hall of Fame and Museum of the American Cowboy in Colorado Springs, CO.
