Dear State Advisor:

Please forward the following message about a scholarship opportunity to
your local chapter advisors.

Win Cash for College

This year, cattle producers will buy the 200 millionth dose of Vira Shield,
a broad-spectrum vaccine that helps protect cattle against respiratory and
reproductive diseases. To mark this milestone, Novartis Animal Health is
sponsoring the Vira Shield Legacy of Leadership sweepstakes. This
sweepstakes helps beef and dairy producers pass their legacy on to the next
generation of agriculturalists.

Five sweepstakes winners will receive $5,000 to use toward education
expenses. These direct cash awards are not tied to a single institution.
Winners also will receive a free trip to accept their cash awards at the
2006 National Cattlemen's Beef Association Annual Convention in Denver or
the 2006 World Ag Expo in Tulare, Calif. To further commemorate the 200
millionth dose, Novartis will make contributions to the National FFA and

No purchase is required to enter or win, but an additional entry will be
provided for every dose of Vira Shield vaccine (up to 600 doses) purchased
between May 1, 2005, and November 30, 2005.

For an entry form and a copy of the official rules, go to The Legacy of Leadership sweepstakes ends
November 30. Winners will be drawn and announced in December.

Please let others know about the chance to win money for further education.
With your help, we wish to reach as many people as possible with this
opportunity to support young agriculturalists. Thank you!
