Grapevine, Texas - Kubota Tractor Corporation announces becoming an Official Corporate Partner and the Official Equipment Provider of the National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) based in Fort Worth, Texas. With this new partnership which runs through 2022, Kubota equipment will be exclusively used to maintain the facilities for all five shows produced by NCHA each year.

"The National Cutting Horse Association and the sport of cutting's heritage has roots that run deep and Kubota is proud to support this time-honored competition," said Todd Stucke, senior vice president of marketing, product support, and strategic products for Kubota Tractor Corporation. "The Kubota equipment chosen for this partnership was manufactured with equine and cattle applications in mind, and we're looking forward to supporting the National Cutting Horse Association at the highest level for years to come."

Included in the three-year partnership, NCHA staff will take the reins of Kubota's M5-091 and M6S-111 utility tractors; the SSV65 skid steer loader; and the RTV-XG850 Sidekick and RTV-X1140 utility vehicles. The equipment will be used to do everything from preparing and maintaining show venues, like the historic Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, Texas, to feeding cattle and transporting equipment and personnel around the facilities. Also included in the partnership, Kubota will offer an exclusive product-purchase discount program for NCHA members for tractors, implements and attachments, turf equipment and utility vehicles.

"We are thrilled to welcome Kubota as an Official NCHA Corporate Partner," said Jay Winborn, executive director, National Cutting Horse Association.
