All Breed Bull Sale catalog advertising opportunity

The Lamar County Chamber of Commerce will soon begin putting together and printing the catalog for the annual Red River Valley All Breed Bull Sale and Replacement Heifer Sale.  This anticipated and large event to be held on Tuesday, November 27, 2012, draws hundreds of buyers and cattle enthusiasts into Paris from a five-state area.

This will be the 47th year for the event, sponsored by the Agriculture Committee of the Chamber of Commerce, and proceeds from this sale provide scholarships for local 4-H and FFA students, while also supporting the Lamar County Junior Livestock Show.

In order to offset the printing costs and offer exposure to local merchants and businesses, the Ag Committee of the Chamber will be selling ad space in the catalog.  These ads will be placed on a ‘first come first serve’ basis.

There are a few different sizes available, each at different price levels.  For $150, the outside/inside of the back cover or the inside of the front cover can be yours.  The next largest size is a 1/2 page ad for $100, and then the ‘business card’ size at $25.  Remember, these spaces are ‘first come first serve’, so reserve your space quickly.

The catalog will be printed in full color, so your ad will certainly stand out.

To make this a minimum effort for those businesses opting to advertise, the Ag Committee is only requiring a business card or a picture ready ad that can be easily scanned.

This is a wonderful advertising opportunity that will also help support our local youth and community.  This catalog will be sent to the hands of many people, including the consignors and buyers who participated in the All Breed Bull Sale in years past; will also be distributed at the Chili Supper and Bull Session, which is being held on Monday, November 26, at 5pm, as well as at the big sale on Tuesday, November 27, at 1pm.

Both the Chili Supper and the Sale are open to the public.  Please mark your calendars for this event.

If you are an advertiser interested in space on the catalog, please mail you ad copy to the Lamar County Chamber of Commerce, 8 West Plaza, Paris, Texas 75460 or email to by Friday, October 26, 2012.

Thank you for your consideration of this advertising opportunity, presented to you by the Agriculture Committee of the Lamar County Chamber of Commerce.
