Joshua Stark, who farms near Edgerton, is the winner of a 2008 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck from the Western Farm Show and its exclusive sponsor, SFP.
Stark runs a cow-calf, hay and horse farm with his stepfather, Clayton Cummins. He said he went to the show to look at feeders, hay equipment and skid loaders and signed up in the truck contest at the show, held at the American Royal Complex in Kansas City in late February.
Jeff Flora, chief executive of SouthWestern Association, which owns and manages the show, said the show had given away a truck in the past and the board thought 2009 was a good time to revive the tradition.
SFP, based in Leawood, does research and development to improve the efficiency of fertilizers. It has been a exhibitor at the Western Farm Show for three years and a sponsor for two.
The 2010 show will be Feb. 19-21. To learn more, visit www.westernfarmshow.com, and for more information on SFP visit www.sfp.com.
