Due to the high readership of the National Bison Association’s Weekly Update, the advertising opportunities in this news service have become “prime real estate” for companies and services wanting to connect with the bison community. As such, we are formalizing some reservation policies that will provide everyone with an equitable opportunity to reserve advertising space in Weekly Update. Beginning March 1, 2021, advertisers may reserve consecutive ad space at the full price for up to three months in advance. Reservations will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis, when placed within 30 days of the current advertiser’s expiring agreement. For example, reservations for the advertising block beginning March 1st would open on January 30th. Reservation requests must be submitted by email so that we will have a record of the time receipt of the requests. Also, any three-month block reserved must be accompanied by 50% payment at the time of placement.

Trading Board Ad

The NBA Trading Board is the largest on-line advertising outlet in the world of bison. Your classified ad will be distributed to National Bison Association members 48 hours prior to being published on our website, allowing a very targeted audience to bid on your sale items before the public does. Ads will then be posted for 90 days. $100 for Active, Allied Industry and Life NBA members.  $250 for nonmembers. Not a member? Join the NBA today!
