LEXINGTON, Ky., Dec. 1, 2011 — While a picture may be worth 1,000 words in some circles, a picture is definitely worth $25, and possibly worth $125, in Neogen’s second annual calf puller purchase incentive program.

Neogen’s Trash My Puller program offers a $25 rebate for the purchase of one of Neogen’s calf pullers — Dr. Frank’s®, Calf-Eze™ or Ratchet Style Puller. To qualify for the rebate, simply purchase a Neogen puller and submit a picture of an old calf puller as it’s being discarded.

“Last year’s program showed there are a great number of old worn pullers out there, with many in incredibly bad shape,” said Neogen’s Andi Branstetter. “We’re repeating the successful program this year to get even more of the worst pullers out of the barn.”

In addition, the photo submission that depicts the most creative method used to discard an old puller will win an additional $100.

“The additional $100 incentive is just for fun, and we strongly encourage creativity,” said Andi. “We build our pullers to be strong and withstand the rigors of many years of calf pulling, but like all good things, they can’t go on forever. We can’t wait to see what new ideas people can come up with to discard their old pullers.”

The Trash My Puller program runs from Jan. 1, 2012, through April 30, 2012. To participate in the program, purchase any of Neogen’s calf pullers and submit your contact information, receipt of purchase and picture of your old puller being discarded to Neogen via the U.S. Mail, or via e-mail to
