The National Agri-Marketing Association (NAMA) at Illinois State University is made up primarily of agriculture students with a wide variety of majors. This registered student organization spends all year working together on a marketing plan for an innovative product with a mission to improve the agricultural industry. The club competes in a presentation competition against many universities across the country. The goal is to market its agricultural product in the most sensible, financially responsible, and creative ways possible. In April NAMA will compete in the student marketing competition in Kansas City, Missouri.
In order to help fund the travel, lodging, and other miscellaneous expenses needed for the trip, NAMA is selling pork products from the University Farm at Lexington. The club is selling brats, brat patties, and breakfast sausage at $4 per pound. All meat purchases can be picked up at the Ropp Agriculture Building.
