CONTINUE TO VOICE YOUR CONCERNS TO OTHER SPONSORS





Thank you for your contact and voice on this matter. We have been monitoring it closely as well and would like you to know the following.

Cargill understands and respects various points of view regarding the deer population, and supports a number of organizations that sometimes have opposing views of others.

Unfortunately, some organization’s stated positions become too polarizing, and Cargill is compelled to suspend its support of those topics.

Cargill is committed to nourishing animals and educating deer enthusiasts on the importance of proper nutrition management, regardless of their habitat. Our focus will continue to remain on ensuring proper nutrition and development for all wildlife.

Cargill is aware of the Quality Deer Management Association position and active lobbying against expanding the commercial deer industry with its Feb. 22 press release. Cargill disagrees with any broad generalization that the commercial deer industry is harmful to wildlife hunting. We acknowledge concerns and support investigation and disease study, and stress the need to focus on proper management of commercial operations and free range management alike – but we firmly believe that responsible commercial deer operations pose little, if any, threat to wild deer. Cargill believes in free trade and open markets, including the rights of individuals to conduct legal business on personal property.

Please feel free to contact me for further discussions on this .

I will use record rack now. I called and asked QDMA to remove me from there membership. I think we all should, why support someone that is against you. If you withdraw, tell them why.

Cody,







Thank you for expressing your concerns. After careful and thoughtful review of our wildlife advertising and sponsorships, we are not continuing our national sponsorship of the QDMA.

I have contacted Trophy Rock and ask them to pull their membership as well. Please send them an email to confirm that you would like them to pull the sponsorhip.

The contact is toddn@trophyrock.com.





Below is the email is sent to Trophy Rock



Todd



As I expressed to you over the phone of the deer farmers concern of your companies sponsorship of QDMA. Deer farmers and high fence preserve owners are joining together to fight the QDMA over their blatant attempt to stop high fence hunting and deer farming. Our main focus right now is their sponsors. The QDMA sponsors are the very people we support when we buy their products. We can no longer stand by idly and support their sponsors. Please educate yourself on the QDMA’s efforts to stop deer farming and hunting preserves. They are attempting to trample all over land owners rights.



Please see the attached letters from Purina and Cargill. We respectfully ask you to follow suit and pull your sponsorship.



Respectfully



Brett Easterbrook

I just got off the phone with Wildwood Genetics. They were not aware of the QDMA stance. They are considering the information now and will make a decision about their sponsorship. Please call them and object your opposition at 601 855 0910.

Are you aware that the QDMA has joined an all out attack of land owners rights by joining the fight to stop high fence preserve and deer farming? As a land owner and past supporter of the QDMA I am at the least shocked. Cargill and Purina have pulled their sponsorship of QMDA. I am asking you to inform all the land owners of Alabama of the stance taken by QDMA. This is as more of a land owner rights issue than a hunting issue. Many of the Alabama Land Owners are QDMA members and should be aware of their protest of the land owners rights.



Regards

Brett Easterbrook

I am sorry this is a dumb question? As for some of the sponsors like Remington, purina

and John Deer. If you buy anything from them then they will have that much more support, against us. Correct?

Hear are links to 2 threads on the QDMA forums that we should keep posted with good information. Please anyone that posts on their forums keep your responses professional. A post that gives good info in a professional way will help a lot more than one that is done out of revenge or anger.

You are exactly right. Where you spend your money counts. What I am finding out is that their sponsors were not aware of the position they have taken. We should all contact their sponsors and let them know you will not support their products if they continue to sponsor QDMA. If the QDMA loses it's sponsors they will have a change of attitude.



Every sponsor and every land owner association should be contacted by all deer farmers and preserve owners.
