Daughter of Roto-Mix Employee Wins Contest

The daughter of a Roto-Mix employee was recently named the 2012-2013 Kansas High School Rodeo Association Queen!

McKayla Bacon, daughter of Sharon and Doyle Bacon, participated in the KHSRA queen contest in Hutchinson earlier this month, as part of the KHSRA State Finals.

Sharon Bacon works at Roto-Mix in Dodge City.

McKayla took part in several categories in the contest: horsemanship, a two-minute speech, an impromptu speech, a personal interview and modeling.

McKayla, 17, will be a senior this year at Dodge City High School. She will go on to compete at the National High School Rodeo Finals July 13-21 in Rock Springs, Wyoming.

She also competes in pole-bending and barrel racing through KHSRA and is on the Kansas High School Rodeo Academic Team.

Congratulations and good luck, McKayla!

OSU All-Breeds Dairy Field Day

Good afternoon!

Roto-Mix is a proud sponsor of Oklahoma State University’s Animal Science program.

On June 18, OSU hosted an All-Breeds Dairy Field Day at the Animal Science Arena. Here’s some information about the event from OSU:

Over 100 4-H and FFA youth and adults participated in the judging contest. Following the judging contest a meal was sponsored by the Oklahoma Beef Council, the Southwest Dairy Farmers Association and Dairy Max.

An organizational meeting of the Oklahoma Dairy Association was held. Dignitaries in attendance were the Oklahoma Secretary of Agriculture, Jim Reece, State Senator, Charles Wyrick, Head of the Animal Science Department, Gerald Horn, along with several OSU Faculty and Farm Supervisors. Several milk cooperatives were represented. In total over 200 dairy industry enthusiasts attended.

OSU Animal Science Major Sponsors were recognized: Roto-Mix, Zeitlow Distributing Co., Johnson’s of Kingfisher, and Priefert had equipment on display.

It was the most successful dairy meeting in Oklahoma in recent years.

Fundraising for a good cause

Roto-Mix President Mike Hilderbrand needs your help!

He’s taking part in a fundraiser for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. As part of the fundraiser, he’s going to “jail” and in order to get out, he needs to make “bond.”

From his MDA page: “Believe it or not, I’m going to jail and I need your help. While it’s not a real jail, it’s even more important as I’m raising bail to help children and adults with muscle disease in Dodge City and the surrounding area who are supported by the vital work of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). I might not be able to rely on good behavior to get out so that’s why I need your help – I need you to donate to my bail! Just click on the donation button to make a secure donation – I know that together we’ll Make a Muscle and Make a Difference in the fight against muscle disease. Even a few dollars will go a long way to helping the patients – and helping me regain my freedom.”

If you want to donate to Mike Hilderbrand’s “bond” you can go to his MDA page and make a donation.

Here’s a little more information from the MDA website:

The Lock-Up is the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s premier fundraising program. These high-profile events occur all across the country at various times throughout the year. Business and community leaders agree to be “put behind bars for good,” where they utilize use their vendors, co-workers, family and friends to get donations that will go toward their “bail.” Each Jailbird has weeks to raise their donations. That way, on the day of the Lock-Up event, they can enjoy the Lock-Up experience by networking with other business leaders and meeting with the individuals and families that they’re helping in their community. All funds raised by the MDA Lock-Up assist the Association in providing lifesaving research, a nationwide network of medical clinics and accessible summer camp experiences to individuals and families affected by neuromuscular diseases.
