Absorbine Sponsors 2007 Miss Rodeo America Pageant and Winner Ashley Andrews

East Longmeadow, MA (June 18, 2007) – Genuine, positive, talented and

determined – the 2007 Miss Rodeo America, Ashley Andrews, has it all.

W.F. Young, Inc., a family operated company with a 115-year history and

creators of the trusted Absorbine® brand of products, is proud to

support the 22-year old North Dakota native who is a role model for

women and professional rodeo.

“I am so thankful to Absorbine for being a sponsor of Miss Rodeo America

and helping young women become leaders of tomorrow,” said Ashley

Andrews, 2007 Miss Rodeo America. “It has been such an honor to have the

opportunity to raise awareness and be inspirational to others, which

would not be possible without their support.”

During Andrew’s reign as Miss Rodeo North Dakota, she was diagnosed with

Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. After receiving six months of chemotherapy

treatments, she was given a clean bill of health to compete in the 2007

Miss Rodeo America pageant. She has taken on this experience with a

positive attitude and used it to benefit others. Her efforts have helped

raise over $1 million toward cancer research and promote awareness

through organizations such as Relay for Life, the North Dakota Cancer

Coalition, the Lance Armstrong Foundation, the Ronald McDonald House and

the American Cancer Society.

“The Miss Rodeo America pageant portrays a positive message of

leadership and sportsmanship for the equine industry, the sport of

professional rodeo and women everywhere,” said Tyler F. Young, President

and CEO of W.F. Young, Inc. and the fourth generation of the Young

Family to lead the company. “It’s a pleasure for our company to support

this organization and the qualities it emphasizes in young women. This

year’s Miss Rodeo America, Ashley Andrews, is an outstanding individual,

whose genuine, vibrant spirit is refreshing and truly an inspiration for


When Andrews was named Miss Rodeo America, W.F. Young provided her and

all the contestants with their trusted products, from hoof care to

grooming solutions, fly control and muscle care liniments, to use at

home on their own horses.

“W.F. Young has always produced quality products people can count on,”

said Andrews. “As a horse owner and competitor, I want my horses to look

and feel good. The Absorbine products, in particular the Bug Block®

products, ShowSheen® and Absorbine® Veterinary Liniment, have helped my

horses look and perform their best.”

Since 2001, W.F. Young has supported the Miss Rodeo America pageant. The

company provides grooming products for all the horses used in the

Horsemanship phase of the competition. In addition, they offer a cash

award and plaque to the Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association’s (PRCA)

contractor whose horse is selected as the overall “Top Horse”. Also,

there is an opportunity to qualify for a $1,000 educational scholarship

from Absorbine, through the Miss Rodeo America Scholarship Foundation.

Andrews captured the coveted crown after a weeklong competition

featuring 28 contestants from across the country at the 52nd Annual Miss

Rodeo America Pageant, held at the Orleans Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas

last December. During 2007, this senior at the University of Mary in

Bismark will travel over a 100,000 miles making appearances at rodeos,

tradeshows, schools, hospitals and PR events. She has spoken to the

American Quarter Horse Association and worked to promote professional

rodeos and the western way of life.

Marketed by W.F. Young, Absorbine products are available nationwide in

tack shops, farm supply stores, and catalogs. Founded in 1892, W.F.

Young, Inc. is celebrating 115 years of producing quality health care

products for the equine industry. From their headquarters in East

Longmeadow, MA, the company is committed to extending this heritage into

the new century. For a dealer near you, or for more information, visit
