Calf or Cash Contest

June 19th, 2014

UPDATE: Congratulations to our grand prize winner, Alex and Luke Drager of Lancaster!!!

June is National Dairy Month and WJTL is celebrating all month long on the Get Up & Go Show and Kids Cookie Break.  We’ll share a daily fun fact during the 7 o’clock hour each morning.  Then, we’ll see if you were paying attention with our Calf or Cash Contest in the 8 o’clock hour, where we’ll invite you to call in and answer a “Moo or False” question.

Just for playing, contestants will win a prize from a local sponsor: S. Clyde WeaverYogurtworks Cafe, the Turkey Hill Experience, The Jigger Shop or Maplehofe Dairy Store.  Contestants will also be entered into the grand prize drawing for a prize pack including your choice of a Calf–or the Cash equivalent PLUS a Cheese Plate Party for 10 from S. Clyde Weaver and an Ice Cream Party for 30 courtesy of Maplehofe Dairy Store.

When we say you could win a calf…we mean an actual living-and-breathing newborn calf: Holstein to be precise.  Click here to find out more about her and to vote for a name.

“Calf or Cash” is presented by Hoober Feeds in Gordonville.  Hoober Feeds has provided nutritional products and services to dairy farmers since 1937.
