Members of the Bush Hog company delegation at the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville Feb. 11-14 presented $1,000 to the University of Louisville to support the breast cancer research of Dr. Elizabeth Riley and the James Graham Brown Cancer Center.

Riley is an assistant professor of medicine in the U of L Division of Medical Oncology & Hematology, and a breast cancer specialist at the cancer center.

Her research includes examining mastectomy and immediate reconstruction; caring for breast cancer patients who are medically underserved; and novel changes in scheduling radiation treatment following surgery to improve patient outcomes.

The Bush Hog booth at the show also featured a pink Bush Hog to help raise awareness of breast cancer with show participants.

Headquartered in Selma, Ala., Bush Hog Inc. is the leading North American manufacturer of rotary cutters, finishing mowers, landscape tools and tractor-mounted implements used in the agricultural market.
