No Super Bowl ad for Nampa fertilizer company

Boise - The Idaho StatesmanJanuary 30, 2014 

The owners of Nampa fertilizer company Poop - Natural Dairy Compost, learned their TV ad will not play during the Super Bowl this Sunday. The company was a finalist in a national small business contest sponsored by Intuit awarding a 30-second TV ad to the winner.

The company announced the news via its Twitter feed, @GlenndaDaCow: "Sad cow face...the boys just told the herd we didn't win...Big thanks to all who have supported us!"

On Thursday, Intuit announced the contest winner was GoldieBlox, a toy making company from Oakland, Calif.

Intuit already paid for a professionally-shot ad for Poop - Natural Dairy Compost. That ad will play on Fox Sports 1, but Ben Bieri, one of the three owners of the Nampa company, was unsure when the ad would play.
