BigIron and Kentucky FFA Team Up Again at NFMS 2019
BigIron Online Auctions announced on Feb. 12th that it will again be partnering with the Kentucky FFA Foundation to auction off donated items at the 2019 National Farm Machinery Show to benefit the Kentucky FFA. The show was held February 13th -16th at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, KY. This marked the third year BigIron Auction has teamed up with the Kentucky FFA for the Blue and Gold Auction.
“The future of agriculture in America starts with our young people,” says BigIron CEO Andy Pyron, “This means giving them the resources to live their lives as leaders of the community; dedicated to building bridges through agriculture. We’re extremely proud to be partnering with the Kentucky FFA once again, and we hope that the money raised from the auction will make a big difference in the lives of the next generation of America’s farmers. This is such an extraordinary association with an extraordinary mission.”
“We are so incredibly thankful to BigIron Auction and partners for their generosity,” says Sheldon McKinney, executive director of The Kentucky FFA Foundation. “The money raised from the auction will support the Blue and Gold FFA Jacket Scholarships, provide student leadership experiences at our State FFA Convention and support local agricultural education programs. We are thankful of those who support the next generation of American farmers and help them kickstart their careers. I look forward to seeing the interactions that show attendees have with our members.”
Items donated to the auction came from the following providers: Gatormade Trailers, Titan Tires, Danuser, Artex, Meade Tractor, and ExMark. All items were available for bid on BigIron.com and were on display at the 2019 National Farm Machinery Show in the south wing hallway near B-101, and in front of the north wing lobby. FFA members were also on hand to help register bidders and explain the impact that the FFA has had on their career outlooks.
