John Reeb, from Reeb Farms Inc, in Whitewater, found a mysterious Green Cup in his pail of Talc, from Talc USA., purchased from Mid-State Equipment in Janesville, during this past planting season. This green cup had a gold engraved place card, telling the lucky winner to return the cup to their point of purchase. During each annual packaging season, Talc USA places three green cups in individual pails of their 20lb pails of Talc across the country.
After contacting Greg Stensaas, Mid-State Equipment’s Parts Manager, to report that a special green cup had been found in the Talc. Reeb found out he had won $500 in parts merchandise from Mid-State Equipment. Along with Reeb Farms being rewarded with $500, Mid-State Equipment was also rewarded. The Dealership was given the reward of naming an organization to receive a $2000 donation on behalf of Talc USA, and Mid-State Equipment. Mid-State chose to go about it a bit differently, and let Reeb Farms have a say in where ½ would go. So on July 20th, Whitewater FFA Scholarship Fund was awarded 2 $500 donations for area youth interested in studying agriculture, on behalf of Talc USA, Mid-State Equipment, and Reeb Farms. The remaining $1000 was donated on behalf of Talc USA, and Mid-State Equipment to The Ag In The Classroom initiative, run by the Wisconsin Farm Bureau, to help provide resources to educate Wisconsin’s youth about Agriculture.
Talc USA’s Green Cup promotion is their way of giving back to the community and to say thank you to the dealers and farmers for using their products. Talc USA has been helping local communities and has awarded over $20,000 ($45,000 is our new total after last year and this year) with the Green Cup Promotion over the last five years.
