Officials from the Breeder's Cup have announced that John Deere has been renewed as a marketing partner and the official equipment supplier for the championship race organization, according to Brisnet.com.
John Deere has announced plans to create an award that will be given out to the winner of the series of races, as the agricultural giant will acknowledge the best breeders who have entered into the events, the news source reported.
"John Deere is proud to support the Breeders' Cup and the NTRA," Dwight Ange, John Deere corporate account manager, told Brisnet. "Through our partnership and the creation of the John Deere Award, we will continue to highlight the vital role breeders play in the Championship season."
In addition to the award that they have created for the events, John Deere will also provide the winning breeder with a new model of the TS Gator Utility Vehicle, according to the news source.
A 2011 model of the John Deere Gator XUV 4x4 vehicle is now available, reaching speeds of 44 miles per hour while providing the driver with a double-wishbone suspension to enhance the ride, the company website reported.
