Partner Appreciation Luncheon
We're seeing great increase in every area of our ministry and our STEER, Inc. program is no exception! Fifteen STEER, Inc. partners and spouses met at Western Sirloin Steakhouse in Moulton September 27th to enjoy lunch, fellowship, and celebrate the program's successes.
Brian Legg, NAL Leadership Board member and program director, works diligently with local farmers and ranchers to grow the program in Lawrence County.
Through his networking efforts, the program is exper-iencing record growth with the placement of 10 new cows since this spring, making North Alabama FCA the second largest FCA STEER, Inc. program in the nation with 24 cows.
During the luncheon, Don Smith, a long-time program partner, challenged partners by saying “I have two cows, and I challenge you to take another cow if you don’t have two. I don’t see a difference in my efforts between having one or two cows. We can add more to the ministry by having two cows.”
Our goal over the next two years is to place 150 cows throughout the eight counties of North/Northwest Alabama FCA. Our eight counties include Lauderdale, Colbert, Franklin, Marion, Limestone, Morgan, Lawrence and Winston.
“The STEER, Inc. program is an excellent opportunity for cattlemen to support the ministry financially without adding an extra burden on their farming operations,” says Scott Tarver.
