The goal for the donation program is to have supreme BEEF OR DAIRY heifers representing each breed for a sweepstakes for the support of the 56 high school scholarships focusing on cattle occupations and 31 grants to be made available to graduating veterinarians with a focus on large animal genetics and rural practices. There will be one $50,000 grant awarded to each of the 31 veterinarian universities. Should a university not have a veterinary focused in these areas the money for that college will go back in to the grant program.
About the heifers: each selected heifer will be donated by a reputable producer breeding for superior genetics in their breed. Each heifer will be registered with their respective breed association. The selected producers will be allowed to donate up to 3 heifers per physical year. The ABF annual goal is to offer 100 premium seedstock heifers at an estimated value of $50,000. Once a Producer donates a heifer, that Producer and the ABF will enter in to a contractual agreement.
Heifers will be made available through our website www.americanbovinefoundation.org. Click on the win a heifer link.
For a generous tax deductible donation of $50 you will receive an electronic issued confirmation giving you the opportunity to own a superior registered heifer. The heifer sweepstakes will end once receiving 1000 donations of $50 each. There is no limit per donor on how many donations are made per heifer. Upon the time 1000 donations are received on a heifer each donor and the Producer will receive an e-mail notifying them of the drawing time. The new owner and Producer will receive a confirmation e-mail or phone notification. All new owners of the heifers must agree to allow personal information to be released for social media and press releases.
The heifer will remain in control of the producer until the new owner is announced. All negotiations for receiving ownership of the heifer will be between the producer and the new owner. The ABF will not be responsible for transport or delivery arrangements. The proceeds accumulated from donations on each heifer totaling $50,000 will be split 50/50 between the producer and the Foundation. The producer will receive a check in the amount of $25,000 from the ABF and a tax deductible donation statement for the $25,000 that was contributed towards the veterinarian grant fund.
Donated heifers will be on our website www.americanbovinefoundation.org showcased with videos and information. This information and videos will be provided by the producer.
