The annual contest recognizes Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) rodeo committees who go above and beyond in their charitable endeavors, making positive impacts in their local ag communities. AGCO will announce the winning committee at the 2021 PRCA Awards Banquet on December 1, during the PRCA Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (WNFR) in Las Vegas. The overall winner receives a Massey Ferguson tractor valued at over $60,000.
“Rodeos are an important part of the fabric of America, supporting not only revenue-generating competitions but local ag organizations like FFA and 4-H that represent the future of our industry,” said Matt LeCroy, director, marketing hay and forage for Massey Ferguson North America. “Sowing Good Deeds shines a spotlight on the generosity and services provided by rodeo committees across the United States. AGCO is proud to recognize these unsung heroes who selflessly give their time and talents to make our ag communities stronger.”
AGCO, a proud sponsor of the PRCA through its Hesston by Massey Ferguson and Massey Ferguson brands, implemented the Sowing Good Deeds contest five years ago. This year’s finalists represent the best of what the PRCA stands for – community impact, innovation, and their ability to overcome adversity.
“These committees have worked tirelessly to improve their local communities,”
LeCroy said. “They embody the spirit of entrepreneurship that defines American agriculture. They have initiated change or responded to challenges to help unite their communities during an unprecedented time. It’s an honor to assist their efforts with equipment for year-round success.”
