SENATOR GREG BALL ASKS FACEBOOK FANS TO HELP HIM NAME HIS BULL!
Brewster, N.Y. – (1/3/12) – Senator Greg Ball (R, C – Patterson) launched a contest on his Facebook Fan Page asking fans to help name his bull. The name suggestion with the most “LIKES” will have the honor of naming the bull, which Greg rescued over the summer.
“This bull was malnourished, dehydrated and on death’s door when I found him in a nearby field. He has made it through an awful lot and has a great personality.” Ball said. “When I found this little guy, I made it my mission to nurse him back to health and thank God he made it through. He is strong and determined and well on his way to being a beautiful 2,000 pound bull one day!”
Video footage of Senator Ball bottle-feeding and scratching the bull can be found in his new YouTube video “Senator Greg Ball On The Farm”.
“You don’t know where your food is coming from! It could come from Mexico, or it could come from a factory farm in Idaho,” Ball said. “The animals are raised inhumanely, and they don’t have a good life. They’re pumping them full of hormones and steroids. We must work to promote local, sustainable agriculture and provide new avenues for locally grown produce and meats.”
The “Name Senator Ball’s Bull” contest goes until January 31, 2012. At that time, a winner will be announced on his Facebook Fan Page wall. Already, entries are pouring in and the name leading the votes is “Vegan”.
