Dealer Grand Prize
Retailer participation in the Absorbine "Load Up a Gator" promotion far exceeded our expectations. Selecting just one winner from all of the creative off-shelf display submissions we received from dealers across the country was extremely difficult.

We are delighted to announce that Jeff Cox from Kentucky Buying Cooperative International is the proud new owner of a John Deere® X300 Tractor.
