UFA Continues Support of 4-H Alberta through Renewed Discount Program

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Aug. 30, 2012) - Starting September 1, 2012, UFA will once again offer all 4-H Alberta members a discount card as part of the UFA's 4-H Loyalty Program. UFA's partnership with 4-H Alberta has been strong for over 75 years, but this year we offer a new incentive available with the 2012-2013 discount card.

"There are so many benefits youth receive from participating in 4-H, including building character, instilling the importance of volunteerism and teamwork, and teaching responsibility," says David Reifferscheid, Manager of Governance and Community Investment for UFA.

The renewed discount program, combined with UFA's continuing extensive support of 4-H Alberta, will help fund and develop the future generation of Alberta's community leaders. The discount program card will provide 15% off livestock supplies and tack products for 4-H Alberta members. New this year, we are offering a 5% discount off feed for their 4-H projects.

"UFA knows how challenging it is to raise and feed livestock, and we want to ease the costs associated with 4-H for students," says David.

In order to receive a new card, 4-H members need to show proof of their 4-H membership and they will be provided a UFA 4-H discount card.
