A valuable partnership that spans more than 20 years is reaping some important benefits for each entity. Cotton Farming magazine is once again the co-sponsor of the Texas Cotton Ginners’ Association Annual Meeting and Trade Show, and the relationship has worked well for both parties. The magazine provides coverage of TCGA’s yearly event in the February and March issues and generates follow-up stories throughout the year.

In addition to promoting the meeting, the magazine contributes significant funds from the show program ad revenues to support the TCGA scholarship program, which offers awards to deserving students enrolled in Texas Tech University’s College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources.

That support of the scholarship program took a gigantic step forward this year. The magazine’s staff decided it would be beneficial to promote student testimonials on how TCGA scholarship awards had helped them.

Last fall, three students – John Gottula of Lubbock, Evan Maxwell of Sudan and Matthew Townsend of Fairfield – shared their stories in separate emails sent to TCGA exhibitors. The response to their stories was overwhelming. The number of exhibitors who advertised in the TCGA program dramatically increased, and the size of the printed program went from 16 pages to 32 pages. The increase in the program’s size means that Cotton Farming's contribution to the scholarship fund will increase by more than 25 percent.

“Our commitment to TCGA and the cotton industry in Texas has remained consistent through the years,” says Lia Guthrie, Cotton Farming publisher. “We are extremely happy that the exhibitors joined with us in helping increase the contribution to the scholarship fund. The ultimate beneficiaries are the students.”

The Cotton Farming-TCGA partnership reaps additional benefits besides the scholarship program and actual promotion of the trade show and organization’s annual meeting. Because of the importance of Texas as the largest cotton-producing state in the Belt, the relationship with TCGA helps foster important contacts for the Cotton Farming editorial staff.

“There is no question that the Texas ginning sector is an integral part of that state’s cotton production,” says Guthrie. “They go hand in hand. If our magazine can play any role in enhancing that relationship, it gives us a real sense of satisfaction.”

It was because of Cotton Farming's relationship with the National Cotton Ginners’ Association that helped it become the official publication for the ginning industry nearly a year ago. That resulted in the magazine devoting space each month to the “Ginning Marketplace” section. The editorial space offers ginners and equipment companies a chance to receive updates on the latest developments in the ginning industry.
