PHA invites your membership ... it pays!
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- The Pennsylvania Holstein Association membership campaign for 2014 is in full swing. Each of the 45 local associations is working on membership solicitation and retention.
With the cooperation and support of eight businesses, PHA is again able to offer coupons for discounts to paid members of the Association. Those businesses include:
• Richard Mellinger Semen Sales

• Taurus Service Inc.
• Hoobers Inc.
• Paul B Hardware
• Fisher & Thompson Inc.
• Farmer Boy Ag
When your membership is paid you will receive a coupon packet in the mail with coupons to be redeemed with each of these businesses.

• Identified cattle are worth more money and have longer staying power in the herd
• Savings on Identification work with Holstein USA including the Tag I.D. program and Start Up Program
• Creditability of records because of good identification and involvement in testing programs.
• Active associations throughout the state that work with members at the local grassroots level.
