NEW CONTEST: Win free farm fuel

A farmer somewhere in Canada will receive a month of free farm fuel, worth up to $5,000, from Country Guide magazine in our latest contest.

Farmers who’d like to subscribe or renew their subscriptions to Country Guide before the end of this year, at a special rate of 43 per cent off the normal subscription price, can start entering the contest now, by CLICKING HERE. (And so can farmers who’d just like to enter the contest, with no purchase necessary.)

The winning farmer, who will be chosen in a draw here in Winnipeg on Jan. 10, 2014, will be reimbursed for one month’s worth of farm fuel (diesel fuel or gasoline) up to a maximum of $5,000 in fuel expenses in a single month in 2013.


You may enter the draw in two ways:

  1. Order a subscription or renewal to Country Guide, Canadian Cattlemen, Grainews or the Manitoba Co-operator; or
  2. Complete an entry form available at no cost from Farm Business Communications.

All entries must clearly show your name, address and phone number so we can contact you, if you win.

No purchase is necessary. Each subscription shall be treated as a separate entry. You may enter the contest more than once.

Entries must be received on or before 12 p.m. on Dec. 31, 2013.


Farm Business Communications, publisher of Country Guide, Canadian Cattlemen, Grainews and the Manitoba Co-operator, will reimburse the winner for one month’s worth of farm fuel (diesel fuel or gasoline) up to a maximum of $5,000 in fuel expenses in a single month purchased in 2013. The winner may purchase fuel from the supplier of his or her choice but will only be reimbursed for fuel purchased from a recognized commercial bulk fuel dealer.

The winner must submit receipts for fuel purchased within a single month and will only be reimbursed for fuel purchased within that month. Receipts must be signed by an executive of the supplying company. The winner will only be reimbursed for fuel purchased by the winner and supplied to the winner by the supplier issuing the receipt.
